I don't get read reciepts. I'm pretty sure I have all the correct options
checked. My delivery reciepts come through without a problem.

You can request a read receipt without the recipient knowing only if the
recipient is using an older version of Outlook. Newer versions prompt the
user or they can turn on the option to disable sending read receipts.
