Outlook: Customizing the Outlook 2003 Contact Form

I want to customize the contact form in Microsoft Office Outlook 2003, but design mode always displays the Outlook 2002 contact form. How can I customize the Outlook 2003 form, the one with the new picture control on it?

This behavior is by design. The picture control on the Outlook 2003 contact form is private to Outlook and not available to developers. For the purpose of form design, therefore, Outlook 2003 exposes the same contact form layout as Outlook 2002, Outlook 2000, and Outlook 98 do.
