Return Receipt Prompt

As of now, it is possible to prompt HCL Notes users if they want to send (acknowledge) the return receipt only by setting the HCL Notes mail policy setting "Do not allow users to set return receipt", as documented in:

But this also hat the effect that the user can't send an e-mail with the return receipt set, as documented in the article mentioned above. Please add a separate mail policy setting, handling only the "return receipt prompt" for Notes clients. Viable options would be:

Prompt Users for acknowledging the return receipt:

  • Yes

    • (Optional Checkbox) Only if the E-Mail is coming from an external address/sender (accept automaticaly for internal adresses/senders)

  • No

    • (Possibility 1) Acknowledge the return receipt automaticaly.

    • (Possibility 2) Reject the return receipt automaticaly.

    Can we downvote useless ideas? This brainstuck feature has been posted twice. It doesn't get smarter, when one mentions Verse and the other one Notes Client.

    Option 3 Remove any implementation of this "return receipt" because it solves no problem. I still do not understand why people insist on having this useless feature. As a recipient, I always choose not to comfirm that I have received this mail. And everyone I ask does exactly the same. What does a return receipt tell you? That the mail has been received? But has it been read? If a recipient does not exist or is unavailable, you will get notifications. And some people ignore even these notifications. If you want to be sure that someone has received an important document, provide a secure download application where you can track exactly that. But email is not the place for that.
