    Is there any way that I can ensure the person I send a mail for voting, clicks on the vot before replying to my message.
    I want to use votting buttons for document electronic signatures, but because the votting message is quite insignificant on the mail i.e. left hand corner of the form, the user will not use the votting button and purely reply.
