        What about the people who are not on subscription? I bought Office Home and Business outright and can't access read receipts which are essential for my business.

        It´s not enough! I´m really need this service and I´m not a Exchange user!!!!
        So, there is no solution... Please, Microsoft, review this and do something to IMAP and POP users can use too!

        I have an Office 365 subscription and just downloaded the 15.35 version, but there's still no option to request a delivery or read receipt.

        I see you added it to 365 but what about older versions? I can't afford to get a newer version. Will there be a plug-in or something?

        This is very useful for business. Given the popularity of Macs, it would behoove Microsoft to add this.

        I need the ability to receive read receipts and the ability to delay emails to a future date/time!

        It's extremely necessary for who works as lawyer to have this option enabled, because we need to prove that the person received the email!

        Colleagues here in Asia use the Microsoft emulation on their Mac's just to have this feature.
        It is a business tool to confirm communication in a region that has flakey internet and folk who will use that as an excuse to deny ever receiving an email.
        Please add the Read Receipt function.

        It's extremely useful for a business to have this option enabled so why there are still doubts on it and we're here to vote when is obviously a good tool that everybody is waiting for? C'mon, do it and stop this agony

        I still can't believe this feature is not included in Outlook for Mac, yet, still... Just why?...

      • Markus PfeiferMarkus Pfeifer commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        So normally I'd say, that this feature isn't that important or was not in the past. With more and more of our clients also of bigger customers moving to macOS, at least for a lot of managers - if needed or not - this is a showstopper.

        Create read receipt and delivery receipt functionality. It exists in Outlook for Windows/PC -- why discriminate against MAC users?

      • HalimGHalimG commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Suggest add ability to request a read receipt in Outlook 2016 for Mac (with an Office 365 Business Account).
