Hi! I try to insert a template form my newsletter.
so in folder Mysite/template I create the folder Email and inside this, MyEmail.ss file whit the following code:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml11/DTD/xhtml11.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" >
<head>
<% base_tag %>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="tutorial/css/layout.css" />
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="tutorial/css/typography.css" />
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="tutorial/css/form.css" />
</head>
<body>
<div id="Main">
<div id="Header">
<h1>Template per la newsletter 2</h1>
</div>
<div id="ContentContainer">
<div id="Content" class="typography">
$Content
$Form
</div>
</div>
<div id="Footer">
<span>Visit <a href="http://www.silverstripe.com" title="Visit www.silverstripe.com">www.silverstripe.com</a>; to download the CMS</span>
</div>
</div>
$SilverStripeNavigator
</body>
</html>

The problem is that newsletter's member recive the mail with the tempalte that I choose but not the tex of newsletter: Why? The textof newsletter is defined inside the CMS in administartion of Newsletter page..

You're using the wrong variable. Use $Body instead of $Content.

You can also access their first/last name by using $Member.FirstName and $Member.Surname
