This is actually true and I'm deeply sorry. I still don't know what set this flag over here, for sure it wasn't set intentionally. Must have been set by accident and I wasn't able to find other recent mails of mine that have it set. So it's not (as I first assumed) a misconfiguration over here and it should NOT continue to appear in mails from me. I don't usually make any use of this options, so it must have been activated accidentally, maybe my cat walked the keyboard and I did not recognize the reading confirmation was turned on. > A good solution would be to add that header to the headerremove file > for this list. 100% ACK. Not only for preventing me stupid (my cat) doing this accidentally again, but also for all those male-configured Outlook and Outlook Express installations out there. Getting your mail I immediately searched if I sent other mails with read confirmation set as well and it turned out this was (luckily) my only one, but within the last year there were 58 mails from different people having this flag set. I can only repeat I'm really sorry for this inconvenience :-( -- Best regards Peter Palmreuther Pros are those who do their jobs well even when they don`t feel like it.
