Can I resend emails to original recipient that were returned to sender for policy reasons (using Sendmail)?

I have a sendmail server that sent emails to another server (not sendmail)  in our infrastructure.  The emails were rejected for policy reasons and therefore returned to original sender not put in the queue for retry.  
The sender is a service and not an actual user so they are sitting in an unused mail file.  

Is there a command to resend all these messages that are in the users mailfile  /var/spool/mail/usersfile    to the originally intended recipients?


Thanks

This seems to parse out the messages but does not parse out the intended recipient in the For line.

So all messages are being sent to one recipient.  As far as I can tell ... but I need it to determine who that proper recipient is.

Example from file is below ... I want it to send the email to tdoe

Return-Path: <asterisk@phone.mydomain.com>
Received: from phone.ritesolutions.com (phone.mydomain.com [127.0.0.1])
        by phone.mydomain.com (8.13.8/8.13.8) with ESMTP id p2IHCjlg009120
        for <tdoe@mydomain.com>; Fri, 18 Mar 2011 13:12:45 -0400
Received: (from asterisk@localhost)
        by phone.mydomain.com (8.13.8/8.13.8/Submit) id p2IHCjal009119;
        Fri, 18 Mar 2011 13:12:45 -0400
Date: Fri, 18 Mar 2011 13:12:45 -0400
From: "Rite Voicemail System" <vm@asterisk>
To: "Tom Doe" <tdoe@mydomain.com>
Subject: New message 1 in mailbox 195
Message-ID: <Asterisk-1-2060776519-195-3454@phone.mydomain.com>
