Hello;

Is that not more "delivered" than actually "read"? It would not take long for my 12 year old daughter to figure out this trick…. and it could be useful to me when the GF gives me some instruction and I forget to say it might have went to the client, but I had "just stepped away to the phone and ran out the door". 

A true "read" should have some indication from the human user IMO. That would have a value, for not just being sure somebody "read" something so you can have a GF with tapping foot when you arrive home, but you can imagine the business implications to be able to timestamp and show (evidence) that the user accepted some message as read (not just delivered). 

Regards,

Jon
