How To Change The Read Receipt Settings In Outlook.com

A read receipt when enabled by the sender confirms that your email has been read, provided that the recipient allows the read receipt to be sent and that the email program or the service supports this feature.

In Outlook.com, this feature is present and enabled by default. It can however be turned off if needed. Here is how:

Login to the web version of Outlook.com and click on the gear icon from the top-right. Then click on View all Outlook settings.
