Basically, what is needed is a 'newsletter' product that creates a HTML
mail, as solid as possible regarding css, and then sends that off to
*one* email address.

That address should be the one of your favourite mailinglist provided,
be it Mailchimp if you have no privacy requirements and a lot of money,
or something like Sympa if you run in-house.

Mailing list handling (bounces, load balancing, rate limiting etcetera)
is *hard* if your list is non-trivial in size. And not something we
should solve. Yet creating the mail itself is definitely useful.
