Looking for an Outlook Add-In that facilitates document routing for executive review and approval.

I'm looking for an "Add on" to Outlook 2000, XP, and 2003 which enables an administrator to originate a document approval cycle.  The process would transfer the document in turn to each approver in a designated order, collect digital signatures, and report progress with each signature (or rejection) to the originating administrator.  Since the executives may be using Outlook 2000, 2002 or 2003, the capability must work on all three platforms.  Microsoft Exchange 2000 is the email server.

Suggestions anyone??

Thanks,
Neil

Office allows a routing slip wich can be circular and returns back to originator
In word, Try File/Send/Routing slip but digital signature is not included. Tracking from one recipient to another is an optional part of the process

I need the ability for the person to indicate their approval and know with certainty that person did the approval, not a stand-in.

Stefri, I'm sorry but your answer is unacceptible.  I'm looking for an Outlook Application or Add-In that provides a tailorable solution that will work across Outlook 2000, 2002 and 2003 in an Exchange environment.  I'm going to close this one and award you 50 points for your effort.

nlesser,
If you are not happy with the answer do not click on Accept.
Feel free to get your points back: remember a Comment is not necessarily THE solution you are looking for. As I explained it was one possiblity which is included with Office, Exchange is not even involved in the process.
To get your points back,  post a comment in Community support requesting for points refund which I agree with: a C grade is not acceptable either...
