In Outlook 2003, I have a read receipt that is trying to be sent through a

pop3 account I do not have access to. It has been trying for days. How can I

find and delete this read receipt?

Do you have Outlook configured to automatically send receipts? If so,

why? Do you have Outlook configured to prompt when to send a requested

read receipt and you chose to send one? Read receipts are hidden by

Outlook in the Outbox folder, and Outlook has problems sending read

receipts which gets them stuck in the Outbox folder (where you can't see

them).

One method of getting rid of hidden stuck read receipts is to use

Outlookspy. See http://www.outlook-tips.net/how-to/delete-read-receipts-using-outlookspy/.

Outlookspy isn't free. It expires after its month trial period but is

fully functional during that time. Use it to fix your problem, then

reconfigure Outlook's tracking options to always ignore read receipt

requests.

MDBVU32.EXE from Microsoft is free but more difficult to use. Read
