Hi there,
My query is -
How can I know that the mail i had send is readed my receiver.
Say I had send mail to 'x' and the movement, 'x' read my mail i got the intimation(through mail itself) that Mr. 'x' has read your sended mail.
How this concept can be implement in java.

This is not really a question of implementing it in java, it's a question if the (receiving) client support mail-receipt. You have the possiblity to set some header-information (via MimeMessage.setHeader(String name, String value)).
There is no standard-header for a receipt in RFC822. But have a look at RFC1891, "SMTP Service Extension for Delivery Status Notifications".
On the other hand, a "X-Flags: 1001" seems to bring some clients to send a receipt. Such a pity: I do not have a clue where to find any information about these flags... So just try MimeMessage.setHeader("X-Flags", "1001") and look at the result.
Hope it helps
Detlev
