Why can’t I get read receipts for Aconex Mail?

All Aconex Mail is stored indefinitely, and it can’t be deleted. This means you’ll never lose Mail in Aconex, but it also means that if you had read receipts, they’d all be stored indefinitely, too. This would quickly add up to an enormous amount of mail that would be difficult to search.

Even so, your read receipts would only acknowledge mail receipt, which is assured through the Aconex system anyway. They wouldn’t tell you whether or not the recipient had actually actioned your Mail. 

A better way to track action on Mail is to set the Response required field and give the mail a Respond by date. By reviewing responses, you can quickly see who’s actioning requests you send using Mail.
