Filtering messages requesting Read Receipts

Hi - looking for guidance /assistance please and could not find a solution elsewhere on this site. I dislike Read Receipts (RR's) with a passion and currently have Outlook 2003 View setup to identify Inbox messages where a RR is requested. I am using Customise View-Messages to display the Field = (Read) Receipt Requested and display such messages in Red in a new Inbox column titled RR (if that all makes sense). It works but it's clunky. I do this as I want to know who is sending me messages with the RR attribute enabled, without having to open the message to find out.

What I'd really like to do is also filter/move those messages directly to the Deleted Items folder and then turn on "Always Send a Response" in Tracking so that the person sending the message will know exactly what's happening - the message has been deleted without reading. I cannot install any 3rd party add-ons as I'm in a locked-down Corporate environment.

I cannot find a way to set this filter up - any ideas appreciated. Thanks in advance for any assist .

its not possible using rules. i don't know if you could do it using a script (in a run a script rule). You could use a custom view to hide them but uing the filter is the only way to read that field that i know.
