TGIF - How to Permanently set Return Receipt on

You can't!

Shocked and bewildered that this is not a policy setting option. The only way to do it is to edit your mail template code. Not even sure what this would be like for iNotes.

There is technote #1211338
"Enabling return receipts by default in a mail file or mail template"
This say for

Notes Domino 6.5.4 and later:
1. Open the design of the mail file and open the DelOptionSubform subform.
2. Give the ReturnReceipt field a default value of 1 (type "1" in the formula window for the default value; include the quotes) and save the changes.


But why is there no policy for this? If I needed this for only the legal department or sales I would need to keep multiple templates. Not what I want to do in mot clients situations.

Someone tell me I am wrong and just missed it in the policy listings some place please.

I created an ideajam request on this and if you agree, go vote on it here.
