Allow requests for Delivery and Read Receipts to be specified as a preference
The ability to request Delivery and Read Receipts was recently added to Outlook for Mac, but you have to remember to set these options for every message you send as they’re off by default. It would be great if it was possible to set theses defaults in the app preferences (as I believe you can do in the Windows version of Outlook), ideally on an account-by-account basis.

+1 for making this an account-wide setting that one can switch on and leave on for all messages, rather than having to switch it on for each message.

Please develop a delivery report and a read receipt feature for this App.

It would be great for all Mac users, who are using Outlook for Mac to be able to have the option to request a read and/or delivery receipt from their recipient, which they are sending their email to. This will allow the sender to know if they have received the email successfully and/or read the email. Please get this urgently on the ball running. This has been dragging on for far too long, as I believe I have put in a request for this feature to be implemented a while back already.
Thanks for your understanding.
Button for Read Receipts and delivery report in the ribbon
+1 for making this an account-wide setting that one can switch on and leave on for all messages, rather than having to switch it on for each message. It's a bit ridiculous that this has been requested for YEARS according to this thread alone and yet there has been no action on it.
The feature of requesting a read receipt or delivery notification in Outlook for Mac for every type of email.
It's a necessary feature.This is highly prioritized for me

It is necessary for me to require "read receipt" for many, many of the emails I send. I have been using Outlook for longer than I can remember and once a DEFAULT for read receipts was set, I didn't have to remember to request one for each email I sent. This is an important feature for many businesses and I am really disappointed that it is not available as a default in Outlook 2019. Had I known this, I would not have upgraded... Having to set this for each email is really counter-productive and often missed in the rush to get an important, timely message sent.

Really looking forward for this feature. It is quite tedious to set this option for every email.
Please add reading/delivery receipts for pop3 business e-mail to Outlook 2019 MAC

The feature implemented by request https://outlook.uservoice.com/forums/293343-outlook-for-mac/suggestions/14738247-add-read-receipt-feature-to-outlook-for-mac-2016 is a lie—it wasn't implemented for non-Exchange emails, nor was it implemented for home users. Read receipts worked for non-Exchange emails in the Windows Outlook just fine (given that the people I email use Outlook, which they do). Honestly, Outlook for Mac, and the other Office programs on Mac are a rip-off.

Yes please, we need to have delivery & read receipts. It is annoying when the Windows version has it already.
