    Sorry, but there is no way to tell for certain if an email has be read by the person you sent it to. There are a couple things you can try such as read receipts or adding a tracking link to the email, but neither method is guaranteed to work. The problem with read receipts is that not all mail servers will send them, and the problem with tracking links is that most email clients and will warn you about opening links and pictures. A warning to go along with this is that there are several pay for services that will tell you that their service will let you know when someone reads their email, but they are no longer reliable because of mail programs warning people about links these days.
