My manger would like to send emails with a read receipt that the user is not prompted to accept. Is there a way to do this in Outlook 2007?

Sorry, but no.  Unless, that is, you can set, via Group Policy, in the tracking options to always send read receipts.

If the users are in your domain, you can probably use group policy to force Outlook have the read receipt option on.

If this is done through group policy, will the user will no longer see the message "John Doe requested a read receipt be sent when message test is read. Do you want to send a receipt"?

That depends.  There are three possible settings:
Always send receipt
Never send receipt
Prompt

So, if this is something that can be set by group policy, then the particular setting chosen determines the behavior.
