Outlook for Mac Default Receipts?

We have Outlook for Mac 16.23 with the latest update/patches on Mojave.

Is there any way to set by default (so the user does not have to take action on their own) a delivery and/or read receipt every time?

... not sure if you asking about automatically appending a Read Receipt request when composing messages .... or an automatic reply to a received message that was send with a Receipt confirmation request ..... ( the latter can be done by Outlook Windows version but no obvious way to do it with Mac version of Outlook ...... the former, maybe some way to concoct it with Rules ??)

Yes...to clarify the question I'm looking for a way to have a read/delivery receipt requested automatically with every email sent rather than having to do it manually every time which is a pain.

Apologies if I muddied the water earlier ..... Rules, of course, apply to received messages .... so, I can't see any options in the Mac Outlook client to automatically append the read/delivery request when composing ..

So, I agree with Iamthecreator on this one .... and believe his comment is correct Solution ...

As you're probably aware - Outlook for Mac is the poor-relation of the Windows version.  It cannot be scripted or customised to any extent in the way that Outlook on Windows can be.
This is a perfect example where there is no setting to enable it by default so you have to do it manually EVERY TIME!!
