Just to let ya all know I have been "playing" with www.readnotify.com and
I have recently sent myself two E-Mails, one the "regular" way and one
the "silent" way.  Then checked d/led my E-Mail.  When I saw the test MSG
that I sent myself, I disconnected from the Internet, then opened said
MSG.  After "reading" said MSG I closed it, and reconnected to the
Internet.  And then went to www.readnotify.com , and their web site
reported that they had NOT been opened yet. . .

So I guess for the time being that that that IS an effective method of
defeating www.readnotify.com 's tracking.

I'm sure that somewhere down the road that www.readnotify.com will figure
away around that, but for now that method works.

Herman
Live Long and Prosper
