    Having just launched our site, we have built some very nice HTML / CSS driven "Generic Content" modules that are being placed throughout our site to maintain design continuity.

    I would like to facilitate HTML (or otherwise) based email campaigns that would send an email that presents the same design modules as found in our site within the recipient's email window.

    Having used Constant Contact for email based campaigns to date, I was hoping to facilitate these types of communications from within SiteFinity using our existing Generic Content modules for the email content.

    I love the NewsLetters module ... but, can I use it (or something else) to maintain our site design in our email communications?

    Thank you,

    Hello Brent Gaspard,

    Thank you for using our services.

    The current version of the newsletters module has the ability to use the content from a pre-written html file. So you can create your newsletter in an Html file and use this file. You can click the up Upload Html file link on the step for creating newsletter content. Note that you have to define the styling rules and classes the html file.

    Radoslav,

    Thank you VERY much for your prompt response to this thread.

    I will try the UPLOAD function ... I pasted the HTML from one of my Generic Content modules into the HTML editing window of a newsletter creation, but the HTML wasn't reflected in my test email.

    I woud LOVE to see a newsletter builder much like your Page Creation model where i could select "Shared Content" from my Generic Content to insert into an EMAIL Page Creation.

    THAT would be sweet!

    Hello Brent Gaspard,

    Thank you for getting back to me.

    This sounds like a nice feature to have. However it would be possible to be implemented as part of Sitefinity 4.0. It would be something like the Form Editor - it uses the page editor co allow you create forms. I will suggest this to the team.

    Kind regards,
