Where is setting to have "Read" message receipts?
there should be an option to enable default read and/or delivery receipt request

Request "Delivery and Read Receipts" feature in Web mail.
Because e-mails are legally used as an evidence before courts, for equity balance, all parties must be having a same level of proof instruments.
In particular, any individual formally interacting with Institutions or Businesses need such feature as one fair way to juridically argue.
The right to have this feature must be seen as a fundamental compliance within the law system. The client version and/or its communication technology cannot be oposed as a valid circumstance or as counter-argument to justify the lack of such functionality, under whatever pretext. The Web version must be therefore, offered as fully part of the outlook.live.com messaging service.
Additionally, as individuals suffer less recourse power than organizations in general, it is specifically vital to rectify here the balance in favor of individuals using low cost to free subscription.
I've used the "request a read receipt" option for years to make sure important emails are getting seen by the people who need to review the information. Suddenly, the option stopped sending a confirmation. I tried a test message to make sure it was going through -- it looks like the email is suddenly asking the reader to confirm whether they want to send a receipt back. The message is VERY small, so it's barely noticeable (and I probably only saw it because I was actively checking for errors), and it's also pretty ridiculous to expect the person receiving the email to go to an extra step to confirm the receipt. It also means that none of them are bothering to confirm the receipt on the half dozen messages I've sent out in the past week or so. I do actually need these confirmations for records keeping purposes -- I don't know why they would ask for the email recipient to go to an extra step which most people clearly wouldn't bother with -- and that's IF they even notice the barely visible message asking them to confirm the email. I don't understand why this isn't an automatic feature. I really need these confirmations to come through on the emails I use them on -- they worked just fine before, so I don't know why the alteration was made.

This option is available under "Message Option" window.
you can find options with checkboxes for Read Receipt and Delivery Receipt.
Message Option will be available while composing/Replying mail editor setting (... icon) at the bottom most of window (RHS of Send & Discard buttons)
read receipts should be integral, not requested, but available for deletion

Include an option to request a read receipt.
It is, in today's world unbelievable that this option is unavailable. I need to ensure critical business emails are read and I used to be able to request Read Receipt on any email. Now impossible. Please add back in! Very important in business!

It would be wonderful to see if the recipient has READ an email that has been sent. It would also be wonderful if we had the option to UNSEND an email that has not been read...!!!
