Yes Charles, there are shortcomings. But something is still better
than nothing.

It is true that this can be disabled in MUA, but perhaps this can be
set at the adminstrator level to be a forced preference, which the
user cannot turn off.

In squirrelmail, a flag stating that the return receipt has been
requested will be there until you send the receipt.

When you open the mail, there is a button asking for sending the
receipt. You can click "cancel" and go into the message, but then the
above flag remains.

Perhaps the"cancel" feature can be disabled at the admin level or the
sender level.
