This is one of those things that you may be doing without realising what a nuisance it can be for those receiving your emails.
I’m talking about using “Request a Delivery Receipt” and “Request a Read Receipt” by default – ie, using them for every message you send.
This becomes a real nuisance for your recipient because they have to acknowledge , or “approve”, the receipt for every email of yours that they read (and they can choose not to send the receipt). So it becomes especially tiresome if they have a back-and-forth email exchange with you.
Of course, you may need to use this feature from time to time, but try to avoid using it as the default.
You can find them when you create a new email message, on the Options Ribbon:
