You can request a notification when your message is delivered to the recipients by checking the box marked "Notify When Delivered" when composing a new message.

DSN messages sent back to your inbox tell you that your messages have been successfully delivered to the recipient folders. They do not tell you if the recipient has actually seen or read your message.

Note: The Delivery Status Notification (DSN) is guaranteed to work only when you send a message to other users on the same imail Server. If a message is sent to a remote recipient, the remote server that serves that recipient account may or may not support the DSN feature. The imail server can detect that a remote server does not support DSN. In this case, imail will send you a DSN message itself, telling you that your message has been relayed to a remote host.
