Email read receipt not available in Yahoo Mail

If you send an email from Yahoo Mail and don't receive a failed delivery message, the email was delivered to your intended recipient's email system. But it doesn't guarantee the email was opened and read.

Yahoo Mail does not provide a read and return receipt feature. To confirm that your recipient has received and read an important message, we suggest asking them to confirm receipt by sending you a reply.

If you're receiving read and return receipts in your Yahoo Mail account, they may be originating from:

  • A mobile device
  • An external email client
  • The recipient's Internet Service Provider (ISP)
