    I'm distressed that I cannot request reader receipt with my emails as I have I have always done without having to hassle clients or myself in worrying whether the email was received at least. This was an option I took for granted with Outlook.
    In addition I cannot save the changes to my stationery to be default as I begin a new email, but have to LABORIOUSLY re-create each email's stationery with my BRANDING. This is insane, illogical, not considered in the software design, somebody sneezed while designing and forgot what he was doing? Maybe.
    I must have these 2 facilities.
    Any help out there?
    I have lodged this complaint with Apple in LA as an oversight on their part.For the request reader receipt I was able to speak to a humanoid assistant who tried his best and told me I WOULD HAVE TO SEND the 'reader receipt' matter TO FEEDBACK.
    This is hard to believe. I did this and feel my request might have landed on iCloud but not penetrated as I have no acknowledgement or accountability of this request.
    Help please... I put out a lot of money for this pretty machine.

    Take a look at this thread regarding setting Mail to request read receipts Mail app request read receipt?. I would read the entire thread, though it's the second post with the instructions.

    For the stationary you could try the instructions on this site this site.

    I've not personally tried either as I only send plain text emails with a signature and don't like read receipts due to the issues with spam and privacy.

    The other option is simply to use a different email client, I would guess that Microsoft Outlook for Mac would likely have these features. Though of-course you would have to pay for it, as with the Windows version.

    As for sending the request to Apple feedback, don't expect anything to happen. It's not like a bug tracker. You can't expect Apple to change their software just for you, same as with any other large software vendor.
