This sounds like it should really be a user education issue; convince
your users to stop sending 'read receipt' requests.

If that won't work, it might be possible to put together some filter
rules to hold or reject messages with these requests included;
although this is really just a way to reinforce the idea that they
shouldn't be sending them.
