Is there a way to embed YouTube videos in a newsletter?

No way! :(
Absolutely all e-mail servers will strip videos, flash and javascript.

So you have two options...

First option is to attach the video to your e-mail... :S I don't recommend it.

The second option is to simply add one picture of your video with a PLAY icon on it. Then you add a link to this image so if the user clicks on it, he will be able to see your video (on YouTube).
That's really the best way to do it, you simply add an image and the user thinks he should click on the image to start the video but in fact it will redirect him to YouTube and then start the video.
Do you see what I mean?
