Requesting read receipts is not supported by the native mail app. Its value in other mail clients is questionable at best unless you're using a corporate mail system configured to always send receipts as the recipient has the option of sending a receipt or not.

Not from me or the majority of knowledgeable email users. Provision of a receipt confirms a valid email address and recipient. This is a goldmine for spammers and scammers. Then there is the issue of it is no one's business when or if I read an email.
