How can I disable the Always send a response, Never send a response, and Ask me before sending a response options for read receipts?

If you want to enforce a particular option and not let users change the setting for read recipients, the solution is to apply a Group Policy, as I describe in "Creating a Group Policy for Outlook 2002," August 2003,, InstantDoc ID 39167. If you've installed the administrative template for Outlook 2002, you'll find the read receipt options in the Microsoft Management Console (MMC) Group Policy snap-in under User Configuration, Administrative Templates, Microsoft Outlook 2002, Tools | Options, Preferences, E-mail options, Advanced E-mail options, Tracking options. Enable the Options policy, then set your choices for the read receipt behavior.
