Auto Resend Emails in Outlook?

I need to use Outlook 2003 to send several same emails every week. As there are more than 10 of such emails, it is inconvenient to use the "Resend" feature in Outlook(I need to pick up the emails to be resent, double-click each of them, and select "Resend email" item in the email, which is very time-consuming and I will always forget to do so every week).

Can anyone suggest a better way to do this? Or is there an Addin that can support such a feature?

Thanks

There are definately plugins that will do this.  This site provides a number of them along with the code for doing this if you feel like giving it a go yourself.
