How to get read-receipt confirmation box in Outlook 2000 (Win2K platform)

I have Office2000 on a Win2K machine. Whenever someone sends me a mail with a read-receipt request, a receipt is sent to them from me automatically without a dialog confirmation box asking me whether I want to send a receipt or not.
I want to choose the mails to which I send the receipt. So, how do I make this confirmation box appear ?

In Outlook 2000, at least, click on Tools, Options, Email Options, Tracking Options, and select "Never send a response".  This only works for mail sent via internet, not in-house mail.
for in-house mail, you can use "watch your back" from grinningshark software ( to block read-receipts.  its a commercial product ($12 USD or something) but it is truly great.  

i don't work for grinning shark, nor am i compensated for the endorsement... i'm just a happy customer.

hey rbdnz
tell me one thing that tab of never sending back  a receipt for intranet users is disabled .is there some way out to enable that tab
thanks and regards
no... at least not to the best of my knowledge.   you can only click that for imap or pop accounts... not exchange.

the watch your back stuff is the best thing i could find.

there used to be freeware that did this from a company called microgarden, but they have removed it from their site.

go with the watch your back stuff -- it's well worth the money.

thanks dear
