I've been trying to research this question and cannot find a clear answer.

I have a simple word 2007 document that I have created a mailmerge. The data is stored in an access database and everything works fine.

What I would like is to be able to specify certain email functionalities, such as requesting read receipts, and the like.

Is this possible and if not, is there a work around that is able to achieve the same effect.

You'll want to see what more knowledgeable Experts such as GrahamSkan or chris_bottomley may have to say, but I suspect that it is not directly possible.

This page here, though, describes a possible workaround, using code to toggle the request receipt property on the messages waiting in your Outbox:
