    Can I stop the BB from sending read receipts?

    Advertisement



    My BB keeps sending read receipts. Is there a way to turn it off? It's turned off in my Outlook, but for some reason, when the BB reads the email through BIS, it still sends it. Can I stop this?

    Goto your messages, select Menu-Options-Email Settings then you can select your particular email address and set "send receipt" to no

    Hope that helps!

    Yeah, I checked that and it was already sent to No for read receipt.

    I don't know why it just keeps sending them.

    This is happening to me too. It's within Gmail for some reason. I just added a Gmail account because my Yahoo account seems a bit "brokedown".

    Everything is set to "no receipt", for both accounts. It's really annoying! Even if I send an e-mail through Gmail, I get a "sent receipt". So I am thinking it's more to do with Gmail. Help!

    Actually, I looked through the Gmail help section and found a work-around. You do have to log into your BIS account (I have T-Mobile...) and go into the filters. Instead of creating a filter, I just clicked the "do not forward mail to handheld if no filter is present" button.

    Seems to have fixed the issue!

    My Gmail is OK. It's my work email through OWA that keeps sending it. And it's not to everyone, just a few specific annoying people who have read receipts on EVERY email they send. And they send a lot of email. My desktop is set to never send read receipts, but the BB keeps sending them. And of course, it syncs the sent mail to my desk. arrrgghhhhh!!!
