Hi acetate, few questions:
Are you set up with Exchange server?
Is this a corporate environment?
If you so, and you request a receipt within your corporation, the users will not have a choice but to have the messages marked as read EXCEPT if they use the preview pane and delete without reading
Hope this helps
