Is there a way to know if someone else is reading your email in Outlook?
I have a friend whose brother hacked into his email. I want an email that
will let me know if that happens to me.

Depends. What kind of server is your e-mail on? What version of Outlook
are you using? Are you only concerned with people who hack into your
mail client? Only concerned with people who hack into your mail server?
What about people who might intercept the message midstream? Or steal
the backup tapes of your mail server? Is your password sufficiently
strong/secure? Uncompromised?

It's a somewhat complex topic, as you can see, and not really as easy as
"getting an email" if somebody reads yours.
