With Outlook at work it isn't important for me to like it, or not like it. What is important is that I understand how to best use it and be able to help others do so.

If I can't find out how to omit certain people, like those from the outside, I may just turn off read receipts for everyone who emails to me also.

Personally, I always disable read receipts. If I get a message and want to take my time responding, I don't want to notify the sender that I've gotten it.

Also, as you mention, spammers and marketing emailers sometimes use it to validate email addresses.

As for configuring Outlook, sorry, I don't know. I use it at work, but don't like it at all.

I may have diabetes, but diabetes doesn't have me!
