    MS Outlook Generate a Read Receipt Even If disable (MS'OL - 98, 2k, 2k2. 2k3)

    The original reference was Q304848 for OL2002
    Deleted Items Still Generate a Read Receipt Even If the "Never Send a Response" Option Is Selected (Q304848)
    For some reason this article has vanished.
    Does anyone know the cause of this error, or most importantly, HOW TO STOP ALL READ RECEIPTS being sent?
    This error, of still sending read receipts occurs in all of the Microsoft Outlook e-mail programs from MS Outlook 98, 2000, 2002 and 2003.
    I tend to think that this is a hole in our PC security and Microsoft has deliberately left this error un-resolved.
    I would also tend to think that this is un-lawful, in that this is extracting information from our PC system without our consent and must therefore contravene the Constitution in the USA and Privacy Laws other Countries.
    I noticed this behavior due to the outbound virus scan and until now had little time to address this issue (problem)

    Other know reference to similar problem is in Q324636
    There are multiple information references by performing a search

    You are not alone! This article was mentioned in <post#=347849>post 347849</post#>. Using VBA to move messages (e.g., when filtering junk) can trigger receipts. See my <post#=326505>post 326505</post#> for a lament. You might also find this thread interesting.

    None of the above is a solution, but perhaps it will stimulate some further thinking and research that leads to one?

    At this point, if MS has stopped publishing the article, and Google has stopped caching it, someone with a Technet subscription might be your only source. This particular problem was patched in Service Pack 3 (see "Outlook 2002 does not prompt you to send a receipt for deleted e-mail" in Issues that are fixed in Outlook 2002 by Office XP Service Pack 3), but I'm not sure it solves the VBA issue.

    Incidentally, the best solution for defeating Read Receipts would be to strip the request from the message while it is being downloaded from the server so that Outlook never knows it was there. Perhaps someone can code that up for us. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Went through fix list for SP 3 MS Office 2002 http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=836033 to see if the article is mentioned as a fix and I think they may have missed it (the fix) for that specific problem.
    Other related are listed but can't see that one specifically.
    find it in fix list for Office 2002 (XP)
    SP1 = http://support.microsoft.com/defaul...kb;EN-US;307843
    and SP2 = http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=325671
    I can't see the fix for the 304848
