Does anyone please know if Goldmine 6.5 Corporate Edition supports e-mail newsletter or HTML newsletters.
If so, where would I begin on learning this type of function in Goldmine?
Any information and help is very appreciated. Thank you!

Check out 6.5 the user manual to see if it supports html--here's a link to a page where you can download it:

If it supports html email you should be able to make your own newsletters by creating an html template and inserting fields from goldmine. I use 8.3, so I can't give you a definite answer regarding the capabilities of 6.5.

I create html templates in Composer (a free html editor) and then import then copy/paste the code into the Goldmine html editor.

I was able to set-up an e-mail template but cannot get any of the images to show up once an e-mail is sent out. Any suggestions?

when constructing your template, make sure you're linking to images on the internet, not your own C drive.

I linked the images to their URL on the internet but get an image placeholder when the e-mail shows up in my inbox. I've tested it in Yahoo and Gmail.

Well, all I can say is that it's entirely possible and that you're missing a step somewhere along the way. I'd be happy to help out for a fee, of course, if you can't get it figured out with the manuals or whatnot.

Most email clients won't download the image by default. I know in Gmail there is a link to make it download the images. Also, Goldmine messes up CSS classes, so it's best just to include any styling directly in the individual tags. A pain, but it ends up being more compatible with clients.
