Is there a way to build a newsletter template by ‘referring’ to, say, the layout of my home page and using this as the template?

Don’t know if I’m explaining myself very well there so I’ll try it another way!

I don’t want to have to recreate the look of my site for a newsletter when I already have it in place - can include placeholders etc in the newsletter template and if so would it work when distributed.

I have looked all over the forums and knowledge base and can’t seem to find too much info about this?

I’m also surprised that no one has come up with a commercial application in Magento Connect to handle this - I think it would be a good money earner.

Many thanks.

I believe the newsletter has to be written in HTML and not the combination of php and html; so it is possible, but the coding would have to be done manually and not just copy & paste.

I saw this thread and it made me think I must be missing something terms of building a newsletter template - surely there must be some way to reference parts of the site without a complete static html solution:
