Sender getting automatic e-mail back from e-mail recipient

I have a user that sends out an e-mail with attachments contained in it. When a particular user reads this e-mail, the sender gets an e-mail back with her name on the e-mail, but underneath it says sent by the receiver. The sender is running R6 mail and the receiver is R5.

I checked the setting under Tools -- Mail file belongs to. This setting is correct. Any idea how an e-mail is being generated back to the sender with the receiver's name on it? Thanks in advance for the help.
This sounds to me like an e-mail return receipt. Does the sender have this option enabled?
