Do all email servers automatically provide delivery receipts when requested from Outlook 2010?

Do all email servers automatically provide delivery receipts when requested from Outlook 2010?  I know that as an end user, you can choose to NOT provide a read receipt when someone requests it...but can email servers be configured to simply not reply to delivery receipt requests?

We requested both a read & delivery receipt from someone outside of our company, but didn't receive either.

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.

No - some servers do and some servers don't.  Some servers can and have the feature disabled while other servers will allow them.

You can ask, but you may not receive the responses you are looking for.
