RE: Another Netequette Point

I can't speak for you David, 
but I remember that I was 
using netscape for my mail, 
and there were messages from a 
specific person that requested a 
return reciept- when I asked 
the person about it, they told 
me that they weren't requesting 
return receipts, something was 
just funky between their mailer and mine.

Now that I am using outlook, I don't get 
any requests for a return receipt. Not that
I recommend using outlook.... but IIRC 
there are options to some mailers that 
let you specify the default behaviour 
for return receipts and popups, and 
maybe even use rules like 
"if sender is xxx, do not popup or send return receipt."

I haven't got any requests for return receipts 
in the past couple weeks, and I have looked at every message 
on the list- and I know that outlook's "popup an irritating 
window when the sender requests a return reciept" 
function is ON, because my boss sometimes requests

May I humbly request that folks posting to the list DO NO request return 

It's only a minor pita for those of us who have to reply to a dialog 
triggered by your request; imagine what a MAJOR pita it would be for you if 
we all sent you one.
