I've been getting a lot of emails from people using readnotify and other similar sites. To check it out, i signed up for a free trial account with readnotify. I sent a email to my self. I opened it with gmail online, ms outlook, and thunderbird. All of which had html disabled and img blocked. To my surprise, readnotify still registered all of the events.
I need help finding an email client which shows me nothing but text.. no scrips, images, tables.

thanks

You can try 'Pegasus Mail'.. Simply google for it.
Only works on widows though.
Regards.

You can try mutt.

It is console-based, but very powerful. If you include procmail in your setup, its just awesome. There is a learning curve, but there are plenty of resources online. This is just a starting point - http://www.mutt.org/links.html#config

It is available for Linux and Windows (through cygwin).

:lol:
I just reread this after Darius' reply, and suddenly it 'dawned' on me.
While I don't have 'proof', you've simply encountered someone capitalizing on the average users ignorance of 'How things work', and are likely pocketing 'free money'.
There are 'flags' that can be set on emails, that 'require' receipt acknowledgement, opening of the email and a couple of others. These flags require that a compliant email server (the one at the destination end) send back 'confirmations' of these 'events'.
Regards.
