I’ve slowly started the move toward using a Power Mac G5 as my primary work computer. While installing and configuring Entourage earlier today I came across a tip for setting up Return Receipts in Entourage. The tip indicated that in order to enable return receipt requests for outgoing messages, you would have to customize your mail account so that every single outgoing message would automatically include an additional mail header titled ‘Disposition-Notification-To’ whose value was set to your e-mail address.
I have never been happier for not liking, or for not using return receipts with messages that I send.

You have no idea how much time this saved me.
