The "Return-Receipt-To" header works in outlook system of my company, but it is a "delivery receipt" other than a "read receipt" which I actually want, can somebody tell me how to implement it?
The header content of the mail with read receipt sent in outlook use "Return-Receipt-To":
Return-Receipt-To: abc@xyz.com
however when I set the same header with java mail API, the outlook send a "delivery receipt" instead

Have you tried adding the headers "Read-Receipt-To:" and "Disposition-Notification-To:" to the email message you are sending?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
