Hi Clive. Request Read Receipt is on the Tools menu when opened from within 
a new message.

When you press Alt-P in Outlook, you're opening the message options. 
Paradoxically I'm running OE at the moment, so can't check, but I think 
Options is actually a Tab you can click on somewhere above the message.
