He could request a "read receipt". Or, if it is a PIN message, it will show him on the individual message (where the check mark is).

He would have to send from a desktop for a "read receipt"...there isn't an option on the handheld.
And PIN messages only show if they're "delivered" to the other handheld, not if they're viewed.

Have him type <confirm> in the subject line, before the subject. This should get him a reply when the message is received (not necessarily read).

Except that only confirms delivery and it doesn't confirm if it has been read. And it only works on mail sent to other Blackberries.
