    If the receiver of your mail clicks on the link, yes. After all, he would be visiting your site.

    If he doesn't, no.

    but would using question marks in that format be the proper way of doing it?

    Questions marks are used when you have some server programming language behind... that is, the page that you are driving your visitors to is dynamic... the newsletter part would be some kind of information to build the dynamic page...

    example : www.mysite.com/page.html?type=newsletter

    The question mark doesn't have any meaning in itself. It is a simple separator that divides the url from the arguments passed on to the server programming language.
