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!

offer huge degrees of freedom within a set of constraints.

I need some advice

I have just started working at a medium size web development company
based in the South West of England after finishing an MSc in HCI. The
job market being as it it for us newbies (ie tough to get into) meant
that I stated applying for a web developers jobs. I got to the
interview for the company I work for now and the interviewer asked me
nothing about my web development skills and a lot about my HCI skills.

I was offered the job of web developer and I have been working here for
around 6 months now.

Account Validation emails

I was working on login experience for our product, and while we have account validation system for newly registered user, by sending an email to the users, I am having a hard time convincing my team to provide a 'Regenerate validation email' link. The Validation emails ofcourse have a expiration time, and there is quite a possibility the user may not access his email to complete his registration immediately.

Data to support the ROI of an Intranet re-design

I am currently working on proposals for the redesign / development of
an intranet for an organisation with upward of 2000 employees.

Having conducted user research, interview, surveys... I have a pretty
clear idea about the things that the employees are using day to day,

I can think of one instance of this in some user testing I did some years ago.
