Read receipt notifications on exchange server 2010

Hi,

how do I do the following on an exchange server 2010?

a client emailed this in yesterday.

To clarify we do not want to send read receipts from desktop or iPhones. However if we request a read receipt then we want to receive that.  So basically we only want to prevent outgoing read receipts

so basically when somebody sends an email to them and it requests a read receipt, they don't want to notify the other person that has sent the email.  
Can this be done on the exchange server?

When they are prompted if they want to send a read receipt, can't they just say don't send when prompted? Maybe I am misunderstanding your question?

Gareth they have been in to the setting under tracking in outlook so that it is ticked 'never send a read receipt' but when they open the email via their iPhone is when the iPhone still send a read receipt.

Hope that makes sense..

Cheers

Why do Marketing keep bothering you?

Is your marketing department constantly asking for new email signature updates? Are they requesting a different design for every department? Do they need yet another banner added? Don’t let it get you down! There is an easy way to manage all of these requests...

Yep. When someone sends you an email with a read receipt request you have the option to send or not to send. I believe in Outlook you also can say never send versus being prompted every time.

Doesn't look promising from these two articles.

I would be leery of trying anything with Transport Rules for this, but it is a possibility. You could match any subject line with "Read Receipt" and drop the message in transport. But again. Don't really like that idea. Could have unexpected results.
