Read receipts or print 'read or delivery receipts' on an email

Please put the read receipt function back on Outlook.

Also, there would be an option from where when you printing an email string, the date and time the recipients read (or saw) the email was recorded on the email.

        When the dialog appears that says, "Don't ask about sending email received receipts again" (approximately), it is not clear if I check the box whether all future email receipts will be SENT or SUPPRESSED...

        It would be very nice to have the ability to set "request read receipt" for ONLY the personal mailbox, but not the Shared mailbox. Or vice versa, or any combination of the two.

        it is there but you have to chose the option to have it tagged as read on each and every email. In the older version you used to be able to select it for all emails

        In an Exchange environment, I'd really like the read receipts to be accessible in the client instead of having to open the email in it's own window, click file, click the read receipts button, and be redirected to a browser.

        They're still there and they've been there the whole time. Look at the "Tags" section of the "Message" ribbon tab. Or if you're using a "popped out" message window, look at the "Tracking" section of the "options" ribbon tab.
