Receive mail

Hello! There is a way that I can check if the email address where I send an mail is still in use? There is a way that I can tell the mail was read? Send on a gmail address from an yahoo address. Thank you!

Re: Receive mail

Hi - Yahoo Mail does not provide a "read/return receipt" feature.


To confirm that your recipient has received and/or read an important message, we suggest asking them to confirm receipt by sending you a reply.


In regards to an email still being in use:  If an account is inactive, you would receive a bounce-back email stating that the message could not be delivered.
