Ask receipt and find out if e-mail you sent was read. (MS Office Outlook)

A question a visitor wrote the post about a month ago:

How do I know if the person I sent the email opened and read the message. #

The problem can hardly be settled in full with any particular program. uses an invisible .gif in the sent e-mail, and based on that .gif script, behind the system can provide IP data, time, and whenever the e-mail that we sent was opened. This method is not 100% effective. There are many e-mail clients and ISPs that block security for security reasons or ask the user if he wants downloading images.

Another option that can find out if e-mail has reached the recipient to read and whether it is valid only for e-mails sent from Outlook which received all the MS Outlook.
