That's the worst of all.  I certainly don't want my mail reader
opening network connections to arbitrary places when I read my mail.
I have no willingness at all to reveal my mail reading habits or IP
address to everyone who sends me email.  If someone wants a return
receipt, they can use snail mail and fill out a form at the post
office for it.
