MDN Extended is an add-on for Mozilla Thunderbird 2 and 3 which allows the recipient of a message to send a return receipt (MDN: Message Disposition Notification) on message deletion.
Thunderbird supports only read receipt (displayed). This add-on provides deletion receipt (deleted).
To use MDN feature, you can refer to the standard documentation.
The handling of deletion receipt is the same as read receipt.
