    Have you noticed that???

    Advertisement



    Have you noticed when someone send you an e-mail with Outlook and has requested (in the Outlook options) a receipt of delivery (be careful I am not speaking of the receipt of reading) an e-mail of delivery is sent with an attachment named "details" when you got its e-mail on your blackberry (not in your mailbox). That means if your blackberry is not connected, it won't have this delivered message till you connect your blackberry.

    How to desactivate this? Because I find not interesting that people who send you messages know the time when you connect your blackberry.

    I live in France and my operator is Vodafone.

    Re: Have you noticed that???

    I just tested this from Outlook to my Yahoo and blackberry.net accounts.
    An email I sent from Outlook with a Delivery Receipt returned the receipt when it hit the receiving mail server - not when it arrived on my BlackBerry.
    An email I sent from Outlook with a Read Receipt returned nothing when I read it on my BlackBerry or even when I read the email on the Yahoo web site. Only when I opened the Yahoo email in Outlook Express did I get asked if I wanted to return the receipt.

    HOWEVER, BIS 2.3 added Delivery Receipts to emails sent from your BlackBerry and on AT&T it was turned on by default. Maybe that's what you're referring to?

    Re : Have you noticed that???

    Well, I did several tests and the fact is that for example I send me a mail at 7.00 am (on gmail for example) I have it on my gmail box few minutes after and I don't have any receipt delivery.

    If I connect my BB at 14.00 pm, I receive the mail "delivered" few minutes after....

    I checked all the headlines of the mail and found that it is sent from some BB servers.

    This delivery mail is from: ME and TO: the person who sent me the mail.

    It has an attachment named "details".

    When I open it I have this

    Original-Message-ID:123
    Final-Recipient: my e-mail address
    Action Delivered

    I tried with different mail boxes (hotmail, gmail): same results!

    Really I do not understand because it appears since this monday, though I did not change anything on my set-up..!

    Another thing is: I changed the appearance of my name on BIS and found out that the receipt delivery mail took this name as the name of the sender of the mail!

    Another proof that this kind of mail is from BB server...

    But how to change that because indeed it is again the principle of privacy, no?

    I don't understand your setup. I just sent an email from Outlook which is on my company's Exchange server as well as my BlackBerry to my Gmail account which I have set up on my BlackBerry. I have my BlackBerry turned OFF, and I got a Delivery Receipt INSTANTLY. And this is exactly what it should do - a Delivery Receipt means it was delivered to the Server - not to you. That would be a Read Receipt.

    Hi, did any one figure out how to deactivate this? In other words how to prevent the BB from sending a delivery receipt back to the sender?

    thanks

    Once again, there are TWO kinds of email receipts.
    • If you send an email with a Delivery Receipt, you will ALWAYS get a response back unless your email is blocked by the server, or you use an invalid email address. I suppose if your email address has been spoofed and used for SPAM, and therefore might be blocked by some email systems, OR if you are unsure of the email address you're sending to, a delivery receipt is useful, but otherwise it's a waste of bandwidth!
    • If you send an email with a READ Receipt, you will only get a reply back when the recipient actually OPENS the email AND is using an email program that sends return receipts AND you say Yes to the read receipt request the email program SHOULD be asking before sending the receipt.
    There is no way to stop a Delivery Receipt from being sent since it is sent by the mail server - period.

    If you're using an email program that does not ask if you want to send a Read Receipt upon opening an email, get another email program! Both Outlook and Outlook Express have this facility.

    The BlackBerry does NOTHING when it receives OR when you read an email with a Read Receipt.
