Stop sending read receipts??

How do you stop ACT email from automatically sending read receipts to a sender that has requested one? There should be some sort of option to 'uncheck'. I have ACT! 2008.

Under Tools / Preference / Email under Email System Set-up there is an option in there to turn this off

Re: Stop sending read receipts??

Could you be a little more specific as to where? All I see is the ability to always aks for a read receipt (in Tools -> Preferences -> Email -> Composing Options) but not the ability to always or never return read receipts that have been requested. I would like for my email to not automatically send back the read receipt when a sender requests one. Am I missing this somewhere in the preferences?

This answer is NOT correct ... that option is to "request" a return receipt.

I think this is perhaps a Microsoft Outlook issue, not an ACT! issue.

See this MS KB http://support.microsoft.com/kb/192929

Specifically, the heading: Responding to read receipt requests.
