    8700 & or BlackBerry's period and read receipts...

    Advertisement



    Does anyone know of a software or something that will NOT send a read receipt when an email is read on a BlackBerry device?

    Presently, if someone sends an email from Outlook / Outlook Express (or any other email client) and they ask for a read receipt, the BlackBerry will automatically send it, and not even ask the owner. I have the option on my Outlook 2003 client to NEVER notify me, and thus never send a response to the original sender...

    Any ideas? I know this has been spoken about in the past, but...

    At this point no, I dont believe there is an option here. I'm not even sure an application would be able to do this, as everything is travelling through the RIM servers. I would think it would have to be an OS addition by RIM.
    Just my $.02

    Here's a workaround that I often use.

    After opening the message, I would press ALT+u to mark it as unopened.

    The sender would not know that I've read the email because the Read Receipt would not be sent. As far as Outlook is concerned, the email has not been opened yet.

    Now I take my time to read the message and decide what I want to do next.

    Hope that helps.

    Oh BRILLIANT! I didn't realize that doing ALT+U while the email was OPEN on the BlackBerry that it would still mark it as unread!

    Ok, where do I send the cheque? LOL Thanks again...
