    Currently, when someone sends me a message with a read receipt request, Entourage somehow automaticly sends the receipt without me ever knowing. I have tested this by sending myself a message w/ read receipt, and I did get a receipt back when I viewed it in Entourage.

    How do I totally disable read receipts from being sent? I don't want people to know when I've read their message... if I want them to know, I'll reply.

    I thought that Entourage didn't implement this, did they add it in some update?

    Anyway, here is some stuff about forcing Entourage to send receipts. Maybe you have some forgotten rule that does this?

    Nope, I haven't used any rule to enable it.

    Apparently it was turned on in some update, because I *am* able to send a message to myself and as soon as I sync back up to the Exchange server I get a read-receipt.

    Thanks,

    Yippee, it's apparently a new "feature" they added that is only active when you use an Exchange swerver.

    Gripe thread at Microsoft.
