Turn Any Web Page into an HTML Email (Part 1)

Do you use a CMS to publish news to your website? Wouldn’t it be nice if you could magically turn those web pages into HTML emails, then send them through MailChimp? Booyah:

Select the "Import from URL" tab when you build a MailChimp campaign, then give us the URL to your web page. We’ll surf across the world wide cybertubes, grab the web page, turn it into an HTML email, and then stick a proper unsubscribe link in the footer (if you didn’t already put one there).

Be sure to read Part 2 of this feature for Advanced Tricks (email stylesheets and conditional content)
