Chosen solution

On a per email basis: click on 'Write' to create a new email. Write email then click on 'Options' in the top Menu bar select 'Return Receipts' and or Delivery Status Notification' click on 'Send'

To set up an auto always request a return receipt and determine how Thunderbird handles return receipts:

Via 'Menu Bar' toolbar: Tools > Options > Advanced > General Tab

or

Via 'Mail Toolbar' toolbar: 3bar menu icon > Options > Options > Advanced > General Tab

click on 'Return Receipts' button choose settings. click on OK

You can set up settings to ask, but that does not mean it will always yield results.

Many mail servers ignore Delivery status notification request these days partly as anti-spam mechanism. Some servers will also remove the 'Return Receipt' as they do not want users to send out additional emails. Even if the 'Return Receipt' gets through to the recipient, the recipient may turn off auto replies or choose to ignore the request.
