The short answer is: you can't. At least not reliably.

The longer answer is: is here. Or you could mess around with HTML mails and embed tracking images, which is also not a reliable way of doing it.

Do that only if you are a pharmaceutical company selling some ahem... 'pills' desperate to know if an email id is legitimate

There is a flag that allows read receipt: "Return-Receipt-To",
but I think its generally its up to the client that reads the mail to honor that.
