I have found the following solution for your problem:

In your _config.php file, add the following line:

Object::add_extension('Newsletter', 'MyNewsletter');

Create a file called MyNewsletter.php:


class MyNewsletter extends DataObjectDecorator {
   public function extraStatics() {
      return array(
         'has_one' => array(
            'File' => 'File'
   public function updateCMSFields(FieldSet $fields) {
            new FileField('File', 'File') // doesn't work


Furthermore, you have to edit newsletter/code/Newsletter.php and modify the function getCMSFields():

function getCMSFields($controller = null) {
   // ...
   $this->extend('updateCMSFields', $ret);
   return $ret;

By now, I haven't found a way to make the FileField / FileIFrameField work. Perhaps somebody else has an idea how to solve this issue?
