Block Read receipt requests in Outlook

We are using outlook 2000 with exchange server 5.5. No way to block auto sending of read receipts. I'm looking to write a macro, add-in, etc.... anything to do this. I've tried all the tracking options and it only seems that they work if you are using pop3 we are using the corporate connection. Code, site links, etc... is appreciated. It's been a few years, but the staff has finally started to catch on to the read receipt confirmation. As the tech coordinator for a district I need to review my mail than go about taking care of things and I am now getting bombarded by people emailing me that they know I am here I saw you read my message. I figure their has to be a way to catch the read receipt as it is going out and block it. I appreaciate the help. If I could give more than 500 points I would.

Thank you

This link might help you out.   It is unfortunate that Exchange forces the read receipt whereas internet mail you can tell it not to send the receipt.  http://www.outlook-tips.net/howto/delete_rr.htm   Hope that helps.

I had already looked at this as an option. I was really looking for a free option, source code to how to do it really. I know that their has to be a way.

Sorry I can't help out further with this.  I am assuming you would need to provide an Exchange Event Sink that would delete the receipt on arrival of mail.

that's where I'm at now with exchange event sinks. Figure if I read enough I will come up with something. I'm just going to leave the message open a little longer and see what happens.
