What I meant was that the read receipt is generated by Outlook when Outlook sees that the message has been changed, but the time it was read on the BB is the time that is displayed. To explain it in better English:
I get an e-mail at 11:00am. I read it on my BB at 11:00am. Nothing happens for a little while. At 11:15am, the BB finishes it's background Inbox reconciliation. At that time, the message in Outlook is marked as read, and the person who sent it gets the read receipt. They get the read receipt at 11:15am, but inside the read receipt, it says that I read the msg at 11:00am, which is the time I read it on the BB. So Outlook generates the receipt when the msg status changed, but it uses the time that it was actually read on the BB.
This has been my experience with testing in my environment. Not sure about others and if they will see it different, but I assume it acts differently depending on BES/server/client configs.
Already have a call into tsupport for this one. Will update when I have more info.
