since Silverstripe 2.4 i have an problem with internal Links in a Newsletter.

I think, that's a effect of the new nested URL's.. I hope you know the real reason and can help me! :)

The Newsletter Modul generate links like this: <a href"=[sitetree_link id=18]">

If i click: Silverstripe call the 404 Page.

(Sorry for my bad english!!!)

I was having the same problem.
This is caused the Body/Content is passed as plain text rather then an instance of HTMLText.

NewsletterAdmin.php ~ line 572

        $e = new Newsletter_Email($nlType);
        $body = new HTMLText();
        $e->Body = $body;
//        $e->Body = $body = $newsletter->Content;
        $e->Subject = $subject = $newsletter->Subject;

Fix 2:
NewsletterAdmin ~ line 160

        // Set template specific variables before passing it to the template
        $obj->Body = new HTMLText();

        return $this->customise($obj)->renderWith($templateName);

The real reason? Now i'm curious about it.

My problem is fixed with Mad_Clog's code. But i would be deeply grateful to hear more about the real reason. :)

This happens because the shortcode parser (for links) isn't invoked if you render a template yourself.

So another solution is to simply call it yourself:

   $data = $this->renderWith( $template ); 
    return ShortcodeParser::get_active()->parse($data);
