Turning on read / return receipts in Roundcude webmail

Some people choose to turn on read receipts (also known as return receipts) in their e-mails. This means that when someone opens your e-mail, they will be given the choice to send a message (read receipt) to you to confirm that your e-mail has arrived.

To turn on read receipts in Roundcube webmail, follow these steps:

  1. Log into your webmail account by visiting - replacing with your web site's address
  2. Once logged in, click on the 'Roundcube' icon to enter the Roundcube e-mail system


  3. Once the page has refreshed, click on the 'Settings' icon in the top-right hand corner
  4. In the middle of the page, click on 'Composing Messages'


  5. Now tick the 'Always request a return receipt' box and then click on the 'Save' button at the bottom of the page.

Read receipts will now be turned on. It's a good idea to test this by sending an e-mail to another one of your e-mail accounts to see if the changes have worked for you.

They were able to reflect the ethos of my business, highlight the strengths and responded very quickly to any suggestions I made. I was very impressed with the service and thought it good value for money.
