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

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.

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.
