The Solaris 2.6 smtp server does not know (at least by default) how to handle requests for delivery receipts. Your options are to either take a look into sendmail versions available on the Net or to return to your Pegasus server.

Hi izar,

We haven't changed servers, just pop clients. we were getting return receipts but not with
netscape clients. if the sendmail change is necessary, is there a source for that package that
you know of?

Wait a second - we seem to have a small divergence in terms here. You say you changed "pop clients". I think you are referring to pop servers, since pop clients would be any programs you'd be using to access your email (Netscape, Eudora and what not). So I suppose you changed pop servers. Again, the error you are receiving ("our smtp server can't handle it") indicates a problem with the sendmail (or other smtp server you may be using). Please make your scenario clearer, perhaps including the whole setup and the whole error message you are getting.

Yes small.  We didn't change servers, only clients.
the message: "Your SMTP Server does not support the return receipt function so your message will be sent withouth the return receipt request"

we are running sendmail v. 8.7.3  
on solaris 2.6
it worked with other clients but not netscape.
