    I just launched a newsletter for a client and the one thing to keep in mind is screen width, a person's preview/e-mail window is usually set much smaller than the browser. I read 500px wide was as a suggested width but I laid mine out so the main content grid was about 400px.

    A few quickies:

    Ask them to add the from address to their address book (reduces the chance of the newsleter being marked as spam).

    Ask them to forward it to others (or provide a form to do it for them).

    Of course include a link or form to unsubscribe but also one to subscribe (in case it was forwarded to them).

    If it is in HTML don't forget the text version (which I forgot to update on the second mailing so some people got issue 1 again, oops).

    Know the utility you are using to send backwards and forwards so you don't send out 3 copies of the newsletter within 45 minutes (oops again ;-).
