About Read Receipt

When I send emails from my 8310  through BIS, other people will see a message that "The message sender has requested a response to indicate that you have read this message. Would you like to send a receipt"

I want to disable my email accompanying with such request. I go to
menu->options->email settings; then I set
confirm delivery: Yes
confirm read: no
send read receipts: no

But other people still see this annoying message.

Does anybody know how to disable it? Thanks!

Re: About Read Receipt

confirm delivery: Yes


is effectively being processed as the same thing by the mail clients processing the message you're sending.


Set that to no.

If you've found a solution through a post; please mark it as a solution.
If someone's was particularly helpful, give them kudo's!.

Re: About Read Receipt

Check the settings on your Carrier's BIS site or by using the (Personal) Email Setup icon on your device.


With AT&T, these are turned on by default when you set up a new BIS account, and for some reason are not necesarily turned off when you turn off the option on the device.  The same holds true with the "Sent from my AT&T BlackBerry" signature!
