E-newsletter usability

I'm thinking that this may have been around the block a few times but I'd like to have to have opinions and links to research, if possible.

We send several short monthly e-newsletters and are redesigning them. The layouts are pretty much the same for all: 2 column, wide on left wtih the right column for links, etc. Our new Web manager wants to have an "In this issue" list in the right column. We-the writers-think that's redundant. Because we use a title link with a short intro, readers will see all the contents, usually. Thanks for your help!

Help: Assigning unique URL's to teams in a network

Hi everyone:

Here¹s my problem for which I¹m thinking through a solution.

A client is building a web site to allow coaches to manage teams. In the
sign-up process, the coach is required to enter a team name, such that the
teams page resolves to ³http://www.redsox.thissite.com. I realize that
around the country, there are hundreds, if not thousands of teams that call
themselves the Red Sox. What is the recommended differentiator?

A long page with scroll v/s Tabbed Page?

Tabbed vs long is not the question - you can have short pages that are
highly navigable without tab. So here's what I've seen:

- Page length depends on the content. Many users prefer things close to
above the fold, but nearly as many like to scroll, which is why major news
sites and other informational sites (such as the NYT) offer multiple page
and single page views in addition to print.
