I'm sorry -- I don't really understand what you're asking for.  The
answer is probably "yes", but please explain in a bit more detail
exactly what you expect this software to do.

Taking a stab in the dark: is it that you want to be notified when a
message you send is delivered, or read by the recipient? That sort of
thing: 'Delivery Status Notification' comes as a standard feature of
sendmail(8) on FreeBSD systems, implemented according to RFC 1894 --
see (Presumably Sendmail will
eventually adopt the updated standard from RFC 3464).  You generally
see the effect of that in 'bounce-o-grammes' where you're notified
that some mesage couldn't be correctly delivered.  Most Mail User
Agents have some sort of support for requesting such notifications.
Unfortunately this standard scheme doesn't cover notifying the sender
when a message is actually read, rather than just successfully
delivered -- some Mail User Agents have extended the scheme to show
that sort of thing, but to ensure success you'ld have to be sending
the message to someone using a similar MUA.
