Read Receipts won't turn off in Outlook 2007

I have a client running Outlook 2007 with a POP account. He has disabled read receipts in Outlook through the Tools / email options and yet when he sends emails occasionally, it appears that the read receipt is still active as he receives a confirmation message of the mail being read from his recipient. Both read and delivery receipts are disabled.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hello partekitsolutions,

The read receipt may be the result of queue.  There will be a delay as old emails were sent read receipt.and a delay in getting the read receipt.

If new mail is getting read receipt confirmation, create a new Outlook profile.

Hope this helps!
