    Email delivery receipt automatically sent in Windows Mail

    I am using Windows Mail 6.0 with Windows Vista home premium. About a month
    ago, in a fit of anger, I turned on a function that automatically sends a
    personalised reciept to every person that sends me an Email. My intent was
    to allow certain spammers to know exactly what I felt about them. However,
    innocent Emailers are complaining about my vulgarity and are wondering what
    their mother ever did to offend me. I have searched all of the mail
    functions, and I can find no way to turn this off. Can anyone help me?

    There's more than one place such a function could be. One is one the
    mail server you're using, and Windows Mail does not control it, so log
    on using webmail and look for it there.

    In Windows Mail, click Tools, then Options, then Receipts. If there
    is a blue dot in the circle before Always send a read receipt, click on
    the circle before one of the other two options in this section, then
    Apply. Click on OK.

    Click on Tools, then Message Rules, then Mail. Click on each of
    the rules there, and examine the rules to see if they include Reply
    with message. If so, click on Remove before going on to the
    next rule. After the last rule, click on OK.

    Note that your function also tells spammers sending to addresses
    they have guessed that your address actually works, so they may
    use it as a reason to send spam more often, if they actually used a
    working return address on the spam (spammers often don't).

    Was that possibly something offered on your ISP's webmail site? The other
    way this could have been done is with a message rule - one of the actions
    available for message rules is "Reply with a message".
