    Hi

    I'm looking for a way to add these custom headers

    Return-Receipt-To:
    X-Confirm-Reading-To:
    Disposition-Notification-To:

    To thunderbird, in every message I send. I have already tried with
    mnenhy but without results. Can anyone help me for alternative way to
    do this?

    thanks in advance

    Put these three lines in your user.js file.

    user_pref("mail.identity.id1.header.header1", "Return-Receipt-To:");
    user_pref("mail.identity.id1.header.header2", "X-Confirm-Reading-To:");
    user_pref("mail.identity.id1.header.header3",
    "Disposition-Notification-To:");

    First of all, Thanks.

    I don't see user.js , just prefs.js I have modified this last, but in
    sending messages only third header (Disposition-Notification-To:) is
    added. Why this?

    Not sure but it may be that TB is overriding the first two. I use the
    technique successfully to add three headers in my SeaMonkey mail account.

    [...]

    I will try in seamonkey. Inserting these extra headers do you have,
    after sending a message, return and read receipt?

    thanks anyway, few days ago my mailreader was calypso but after
    installing a wi-fi card and router calypso don't send messages, so I
    must use another mailreader

    in other words I must add:

    user_pref("mail.identity.id1.headers", "header1,header2,header3");
    user_pref("mail.identity.id1.header.header1", "Return-Receipt-To:");
    user_pref("mail.identity.id1.header.header2", "X-Confirm-Reading-To:");
    user_pref("mail.identity.id1.header.header3", "Disposition-Notification-To:");

    right?

    I'm not adding those particular headers so, no. But the three I do add
    are, indeed, in the messages I send.

    Yes: in messages sended I see these tree headers, but, unlike from
    calypso, I don't receive any *return receipt*. Do you have *return
    receipt* after sending messages from destination mailserver?

    This is what I mean saying *return receipt* (personal data censored)

    excuse me for questions, I would have the same features of calypso in
    terms of *return receipt* and *read receipt* . thanks for help
    you have already gived me, anyway

    Sorry, I wasn't really paying attention to the content of the headers,
    and what you're trying to achieve, rather just the "how to" aspect of
    inserting custom headers.

    If you want return receipts for messages you send, you can set that in
    Thunderbird's preferences.

    Tools - Options - Composition - General - Return Receipts button. Check
    the box if you want to always request a Return Receipt for sent
    messages. Set other options as desired.

    However, you should know that return receipts are at the discretion of
    the recipient. For instance, my email client is set to /never/ send
    return receipts when they are requested.

    If this isn't what you're trying to achieve, please let us know in
    detail what you are trying to make happen.
