When I send an e-mail through BES on my Blackberry (not to be confused with a BIS account) is there anyway I can have it to request a read receipt from the destination address when that person reads the message?

Don't think so. That's an option you can set in Outlook as a rule that runs on the Exchange server. That's easy to do, but I don't think you can change on your blackberry on the fly per message.

You can add <confirm> to the subject line and you will get a delivery receipt. I think that's about it, though.

I think the xxx8220;READxxx8221; option in outlook only works when email is sent from the Outlook application. I have never found a way to get a read receipt when an email is sent form the BB. If you ever do , post it
If someone helps, tell them by clicking the Thanks button
