msgreceiptrequested - but delivery receipt, not read receipt

Hi, I have a VB app to send emails. I'd like to know that a message arrived at the recipient server. In Outlook I would check the options "Request read receipt" and "request delivery receipt". programming-wise I have found msgreceiptrequested but that sets only the "read receipt" one.

Is there a way to also set the "Delivery receipt" option?

Thanks,
  Simon

If you're sending through Outlook, then set the OriginatorDeliveryReportRequested property of the outgoing message to True.

I'm using MAPI.message, and it doesn't support this attribute. Thanks though!

The corresponding MAPI property name is PR_ORIGINATOR_DELIVERY_REPORT_REQUESTED.
