Use the Delivery Reports Tab to Get Delivery Information About Messages

Use the Delivery Reports tab to search and get delivery information about messages sent by you or sent to you. If you sent a message to five people, for example, you can check the status of the delivery of that message to each person.

You can get to the Delivery Reports tab by clicking Options > See All Options > Organize E-Mail > Delivery Reports from your e-mail. If you're unable to view a delivery report or don't see the Delivery Reports tab under your e-mail options in Outlook Web App, check if your browser is supported for Outlook Web App. For more information, see Supported Browsers for Outlook Web App and Exchange Online.
