How to modify the read receipt message? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I need to know if it is possible to modify the default text in read receipts in Outlook.

    The receipt is sent in only one language, which is the language of the receiver.

    In our institution, those receipts should always be sent in two languages (English / French). So they should look like this :

    Read: / Lu : Testing Y

  • Hi David,

    I am afraid currently there is no way to modify the read receipt message. Given this situation, it is encouraged to share your feedback via the Outlook UserVoice forum
