I have used for over 10 years now MSGTAG free edition on my workhorse OE Email account with not a single problem and I have almost always received a message saying that the recipient has opened my mail from a large variety of highly official and business sources to friends.

With my Gmail account I have just discovered Bananatag for Google Chrome as a simple extension
http://www.softpedia...Extension.shtml

With a few simple adjustments to the settings, it works perfectly with no trouble whatsoever. Every new Email has the Bananatag marker and tracker checkbox included and a receipt message is received immediately the recipient opens the sent mail. Brilliant, it is extremely user friendly and the support people can be contacted easily and are prompt in replying.

With the free version, 5 Emails per day only are allowed, but for myself and many more casual Email senders, that is more than adequate.

Will have to check it out, though I use Hosted Exchange which includes read receipt options (a few of them). . . So I've not a personal use for this, though I had a friend who was just speaking about this and how he wish it was easier for him. I'll be sure to pass this along, thanks!

Actually, Bananatag and Signals are both excellent tracking addons for Chrome Gmail and can be best downloaded from the Chrome webstore. Only takes a few seconds and you have them installed and ready to track.

Simply Google "Bananatag for Chrome" and "Signals for Chrome" to get the webstore page.

"Whoreadme" is another good tracking program and can be used with any Email provider, not just Gmail. You simply register for a free account on - "http://whoreadme.com/" , giving your Email address, then add "whoreadme.com" to the end of the recipients address - this is hidden from the recipient. When the mail has been opened, you will get an Email saying your mail has been read, together with a stack of other recipient data, see -

http://whoreadme.com...&key=4o8corwgiq

These are fictitious examples provided by Whoreadme.com.
