Didn't see a report on this, but excuse if duplicate or otherwise known limitation.

If you get a message specified with return receipt option and filter it to Local
Folders, when you display the message you will not be prompted to return a receipt.

1.  Set a filter (I'm using IMAP account) with an action to move matches to a
folder on Local Folders.
2.  Send a message to that user with the return receipt option set.
3.  Get the message --> it is filtered to Local Folders destination.
4.  Display the message.  No prompt appears for you to return a receipt.

Result:  not prompted for return receipt if message moved/filtered to Local
Folders before displaying it.

good catch Laurel. Nope no bug.
Closest is bug 135987 (ret recpts don't get filtered
to any folder under local folders)

And this is a problem for Global Inbox, because you can't use Return receipts if
you're using this new feature... (Also for Thunderbird)

Should a new header be added to any incoming message?

X-Mozilla-to: me@example.org

So you can move message any time you want, carring original receipt address inside, doing trivial to generate a return receipt message.

Any message received or imported should be stripped of this header to avoid unwanted behavior, before adding the correct one.

(sorry about my bad english)
