[SPAM] [thelist] Newsletter help

I've found that the least offensive newsletters are those that have short
headlines and blurbs and hyperlinks to more extensive explanations and
images or whatever...  when I'm interested in something (usually before I
have to scroll) I click.

This way, the mail is easy to read, looks the same to everyone and brings
the recipient to your site, which is really where you want them to be

I know a few site owners who have newsletters on the site, in a kind of
e-zine style. The email they send out informs people of the highlights and
has a link to the full newsletter.
