If the recipient for your email was either an @aol.com or @aim.com address, you can check to see if the email was read.
Assuming you are using AOL webmail, (http://webmail.aol.com) click on your Sent folder and check the box next to the email in question. After checking the box, click on the Action button and then select Show Message Status. (you can also right click on the message and select show message status)
If you're using the AOL software,go into your Sent folder, select the message and then click "Status."
