Re: Mail Merge Read Receipt

Sorry, reference to wrong article in previous response. It should hve been:

You can modify the code in the article "Mail Merge to E-mail with
Attachments" at:

so that you get a read receipt for the email that is sent out with the
document attached to it. Doesn't mean that the recipient will have opened
and read the attachment however. But then an indication that they have read
something doesn't mean that they understand it either.

Hope this helps.

Please reply to the newsgroup unless you wish to avail yourself of my
services on a paid consulting basis.
