if that happened to me I would think I was infected as that would surely require a page redirect/hijack ;so

assuming the recipient wants to receive the email, they need to first log into their email ; or are you unsure OF how email 'works' or having problems with someone whom you think is not receivng the emails?

can you perhaps describe more fully what your problem/concern IS please?

I doubt it, for several reasons. Not everyone has a personal computer. Many people use public terminals. These are constantly connected to the internet. Just who would the recipient be? How would the sender know that the right person is reading the mail? Can you imagine the havoc if EVERYONE used 'flash e-mail' even on a single personal computer? Even if it were possible, I'd recommend not doing so. I, for one, would have the same reaction as ruby1.

Let's assume that I was the recipient of one of your 'flash e-mails'. As soon as I saw it, I would immediately suspect infection, immediately disconnect from the internet and start scanning my computer like crazy and probably enlist the aid of the HJT forum here to find out what in the world had gone wrong with my computer.

I'm with ruby1 and Orange Blossom. To me, it would be like having my front door open automatically just because someone knocked on it.

Besides, look at it from a spammer or even legitimate advertiser's perspective: if it were possible to do what you want, most spammers and even a few opt-in advertisers would already be using it.

If there were a way to do what you want and I got a mail that flashed open without me opening it, I would immediately delete the mail without reading it. If you sent me another one that did the same thing, it would be deleted also, then I would set up a rule in Outlook Express to not only block you as the sender, but to make any mail by you disappear into cyberspace. The mail be deleted from the mail server but not downloaded into OE-and if you ask if I got your mail, I could honestly answer NO.
Why would you want to do something so "in your face"? Seems that would be very annoying.

lets track back a bit;what EXACTLY is YOUR concern? can you expand a bit please?do you know how email 'works' and what is required to open and read a mail?and maybe the receipient does not want to receive your email?

you also need to be very careful with e mail titles ; you need to confirm I think that you are not in the habit of sending 'unwanted' or spam e mails? as if so we ( at least I ) will no longer assist you

thinking over this; what is so special about YOUR emails as opposed to anyone else's?

when you post on here for instance, it is up to each person who visits this site to decide if they wish to read, or NOT, your question ; you cannot force any one to read this thread; also, you cannot force the Admin to allow your thread to remain on the forum ; nor can you force anyone to reply to your thread

same with an email; yes you may SEND an email to whomever you choose; but you cannot force the recipient to open it or read it, which is I think the purpose of your question , and I am wondering why you wish to force an individual to read YOUR emails ; they MAY just chuck it in the bin which is entirely their choice ; you send it but it is their choice to recieve it or not

ARE you trying to send spam(which I think may BE the purpose of this thread) and if so ,why?
perhaps you could come back here and explain a lot clearer your intentions and reasons for your enquiry ??
