Wow that's a bit harsh. Firstly if you think my email client is poorly 
written, you're ... oh hold on, you're right. I can set my 
return-receipt handling per email account. What I said before about it

to strip off that header because, regardless of the email client

doing so only by mistake. Although in our broadband era it's probably 
insignificant, all those return-receipts flying around is a waste of
