Return Receipt: Please give us a View/Folder indicator and ability to NOT send them.

This is pretty much a default option in almost all mail clients. It is trivially easy to add to the mail template, but then you have an 'unsupported custom template'.
Like to see it in the default mail template.

    Would still love to see this. I hate the auto-sending of return receipts; it's always the spammers looking for signs of life. Please at least prompt us to ask if we want to send or not!

    I would be great, if that is configurable via profile. E.g.

    • always send return receipt,

    • never send,

    • prompt for each mail,

    • ...

    According to the RFC , users should be prompted before sending a return receipt.So clearly YES this needs to be improvide in the Notes client

    I agree. It’s fine if return receipts are sent on internal emails, but we need an option to *not* send them back to external senders. 


    I cant tell you the number of times I get spam from companies trying to sell me mailing lists - IBM User Lists, Citrix User Lists, VMware user lists, etc. - and they all return receipt me. 


    I don't want them to know their mail made it through to me and I opened it. That’s none of their business and they know if they get a person on the other end they can just hound me more. At least if I open it on my Notes client I can intercept the return receipt in my local client’s, but if I open it on mobile or web, I can’t.

    yes please the actually implementation of policy return receipt is absurd 


Blocking return receipt

Scenario: User A sends a email to user B with the return receipt enabled. Now user B will have the ability to select yes or no the return receipt to user A
