You mean the option in Evolution to "Request Read Receipt" (under Insert) when 
composing a message? Or perhaps "Request Disposition Notification" (under 
Options) in Kmail? It's even in Thunderbird (don't have it installed, but 
it's there) too.

This is pretty much standard and it simply adds a header to the message. I 
don't think this is what he was asking for though.
