Using standard internet mail, no.  You can *request* that a read receipt be 
sent when the email is opened by the recipient, but there is no guarantee 
that that person will allow the receipt to be sent.  Read receipts also often 
annoy the recipient and can be perceived as rude and intrusive.

You could try something fancy with HTML mail, but again, that's not 
guaranteed since not all MUAs can (or do) understand HTML mail.
