Is it possible to set delivery/read receipts for external email only?

i.e. when sent to an external user.

Not unless you're willing to custom code your own transport agent (which is effectively what that third-party product is in my previous link, except with a GUI front end).

See this link if you'd like to find out more: http://blogs.technet.com/b/appssrv/archive/2009/05/29/how-to-suppress-delivery-and-read-receipts-in-exchange-2007.aspx

This transport agent will block all read receipts but if you're adept with C# then maybe you can figure out how to block just internal ones.

In Outlook 2007 you can enable read/delivery receipts but I cant see how you can restrict to external only?

Also, Im guessing server-wise this ability (in general) can be enabled or disabled? Otherwise, it could be problematic with everyone turning this on.

you can request a read receipt but it is up to the user to send it back to you. So it is not a guaranteed item .. you can track the message as far as their email server after that you have no control

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

Easiest way to do this would be through a third party utility such as this one: http://ivasoft.com/rrr2007.shtml

Note that the software isn't free, but there is a trial version of it which you can use. The link above contains screenshots to install and configure the software.
