I need to know how I can determine if an email I send to someone has been opened.
Thanks

These days it is impossible. Read notifications normally prompt a popup asking the reader if the notification should be sent, and single pixel tracking images are just not loaded.

Is this a unique email - to one person?

If so, could you do this - it might work...

Set up the email and send a gif. Whatever it might be. Put the gif on your website in a very protected place (from robots...).

Send the email and watch your logs to see if that gif gets a hit.

Would that work?

Send an e-card using one of the e-card online services.
Most of them will sent you an email when the card is read.

If you're afraid the receiver won't open it when your name is displayed in the email sent to them, use another name+emailadres there.

Works in personal email, not suitable for business emails... :-P

Although TexMex solution might work better :-D

If you want it business like, something along the following lines might do the trick:

Could you also please put a single rose in a vase on your bedroom window cill, as an acknowledgment of reciept of this communication. We would also ask that you give your formal consent (by return) for one of our agents to collect photgraphic evidence of this act, for our records.

Your assistance in this matter would be most appreciated.
