Email receipts

2501 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I have been looking around for a way to send out emails via a perl module that request receipts such as MDN or DSN but I haven't seen anything that covers it when I run some searches.
Does anyone know of any good docs or modules for this?
I am willing to roll my own solution if I can find some decent documentation.
thanks for your time,

    I'd just add to confirm OPENING BY THE CLIENT
    (work only with some mail clients (outlook is one of them))
