We are excited to announce that we are currently rolling out a new feature called SharePoint News for Email. This feature enables you to convert your SharePoint News Posts intro distributions that can be read fully in email inboxes. You can now engage your audience directly in their inbox and track their mail reads.

To create a News post for email, select a “Made for email” template from the news template picker:
Selection of the templates for new news article - showing the email ready templates.
When you are finished authoring, you can now post your news and send it fully to email in one step.
SharePoint News visible in the SharePoint portal and in the email client.
Sending a page as an email will not change existing site permissions, and sending a page as an email will not give your recipients access to the original page if they don’t already have it. You can think of sending mail by email as making someone a photocopy of a page in a book. They can read that page, but nothing else in the book.
Live video demo on the feature.
