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

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN" "">
<html xmlns="" xml:lang="en" >
<% 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" />
<div id="Main">
<div id="Header">
<h1>Template per la newsletter 2</h1>
<div id="ContentContainer">
<div id="Content" class="typography">
<div id="Footer">
<span>Visit <a href="" title="Visit"></a>; to download the CMS</span>

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
