Is there a way to allow an Outlook 2003 custom form to be used in Outlook 2007 without upgrading?

Our company has a mixed environment with most users having Outlook 2003 and a few with Outlook 2007.  Our finance department uses a form designed in house to send out invoices for approval.  Those who have Outlook 2007 lose the ability to use the buttons at the top, like Send.  I need to see if there is a way to make this form work for both versions.

Thanks for the info Gary.

I took this information and did some investigative work.  I added the Form Definition to be sent with the form.  

Apparently, the Reply Now button that is on the form does not appear as part of the form.  In order to use the Reply Now, the customer must go to the 2007 toolbar and select Custom Actions/Reply Now.

All fixed.
