Importing data into an email template


We've been using CM for newsletters which works well, and having a defined template has let our staff send them out without opportunity to destroy the design :)

However, we now want to send a monthly email listing our upcoming events in tabular form - i.e. a data table which we already display on the website.

This could be implemented using a repeating region, but getting the admin staff to type out all data again by hand is not a good use of their time and leaves too much room for error. Is there any way to give a repeating region a URL to fetch an XML file from (or similar) in order to populate the template automatically?

I'm afraid it isn't possible to do that right now - you might be able to generate a page on your website which is the full email, and just have them import that?
