I want to use the newsletter module, but I have some (small) problems/questions:

When I preview a newsletter images from the content are not show due to the relative urls.

I tried to set the relative_urls to false in sapphire/forms/HhtmlEditor and in sapphire/javascript/HtmlEditor.js but the images urls are still inserted relative.

I also want that the images are embeded in the email, so recipients don't need to confirm downloading images when they open the newsletter, so the should be sent as attachment with cid pointers etc..
I tried to set $_INLINED_IMAGES to true in Mailer.php function wrapImagesInline() (latest trunk file), but it has no effect.

1. How to show images in newsletter preview.
Edit:: It seems that since the SS install is in a subfolder, the images wont show up.

I added this to NewsLetterAdmin.php function preview() around line 175:

$obj->Body = str_replace('src="assets','src="'.Director::baseURL().'assets',$obj->Body);

which will add the subfolder to the images..

2. How to make embedded/inline images work?

Any directions would be highly appreciated :)
