Other Ways You Can Protect Yourself

There is another setting available in Thunderbird that you can configure to help protect your privacy and security: Return Receipt settings. You can also choose to digitally sign and encrypt your mail for an extra layer of protection, or use certificates and security devices. This section provides some other avenues to explore to get maximum protection.

Return Receipt Settings (Tools | Options | Advanced)

It is probably a good idea to configure your settings so that Thunderbird prompts you when you receive a request for a return receipt. That way, you will prevent spammers from even knowing that your account exists. (I do not recommend checking the “Always Send” box in this area—either “Ask me” or “Never send” are better choices to protect your privacy.) Figure 11-5 shows one way you can configure your settings.
