In Outlook you can set to request a read receipt from the recipients of your e-mails. You could also set this on a single e-mail level.
The following extension enables Outlook to request or not to request a read receipt depending on the recipient. That is, it adds the ability to automatically make exceptions from your general setting.
The variable 'Request' controls whether a read receipt should be requested (True) or not requested (False).
The variable 'Addresses' holds the e-mail addresses. You can enter full e-mail addresses or domain names. Please customize both variables for your needs, and enter your addresses delimited by a comma.
Please note: It's always the recipient's decision whether or not he will actually send you a requested read receipt. You can't influence that.
