Outlook 2003: saved mail which I need to send every day many times

What is easyest way to save some eMails in Outlook and use them for everyday sending? I wanna something like drafts, that I save eMail with text, and when I need this same text to send to anyone, I just open this eMail and send it (and also, change some values in eMail).

If I use drafts for this, everything is OK, but this mail is no longer in drafts after sending...

Now I search trought send items and when I find eMail that I need to send, I copy that eMail and then send it to new person. But this is way to much, I wanna simple solution for this. 1. Select mail 2. change data 3. enter To: and Cc: and 4. send.

I have tried to create forms for this purpose, but I think that forms are not for this purpose...

What are best practices and how this is handled in Outlook 2003?

There are a number of ways to accomplish this, but basically you want to create an email template.  The KB article for how to do this is here:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/258256/

There are also 3rd party products which do a nice job, and this one is free for the "lite" version:

A macro will probably do the job for you. Although I have no idea how to write one!
Perhaps one of the Outlook experts will contribute something.

Tech,

your answer is great... Justo one thing (that I don't open new question):

When I switch to Outlook editor, and I open new message, I got error:

One or more activeX controls couldn not be displayed because either:

1. Your current security settings prohibit running active X controls on this page or
2. You have blocked a publisher...

Where to turn off this?

Open up Tools > Options > Security Tab and change the Security zone setting to Internet (because it's probably set to "Restricted sites".
