Many different ways, just up to how you want to design it.  I would suggest laying out the newsletter with a rounded rectangle wrapping the entire email.  You could copy the layer style off one of the color Your Store PSDs and then apply it to your rounded rectangle box. Maybe put a gradient in this box as the background.  The buttons you use could be stylized with the glossy look used on the main menu in the Your Store template. 

After you layout your newsletter in Photoshop you could slice it up with the "slice tool" for links or other hot spots on your newsletter.  Then do a save for web and either save as tables or css, whichever you prefer.

I hope this helps, if I misunderstood your question let me know.

One more question:
I am trying to create a white shadowed round corner box as you suggested. I made a table 3x3 and inserted all the corners, topline, bottom,left and right images. I made the middle cell white. When I type a text into the main cell and the table stretches, the images (left and right borders) stay the same. How do I make them strech with the text in the newsletter?

The left and right images need to be set to the background of the table and then with some styles made to repeat vertically.

For example if you had the following table tag:

<td>

Just add the below style:

<td style="background: url(http://www.yoursite.com/images/vertical_repeat.jpg) repeat-y;">

Hello Jonah, I have one more question: when I created the table with rounded corner content place for my newsletter, when I paste the code to the Acajoom - the program that manages newsletters - it inserts &nbsp; in the table cell, therefore ruining my desing, since the corner images are only 8x8 pixels. When I erease this code, on previewing the program inserts it again.

How can I avoid having &nbsp; inside the code?

First I would make sure there are no spaces in the table cell before pasting your code into Acajoom.  The &nbsp; is a space in HTML.

If there is a WYSIWYG editor turn this off.  Sometimes they can insert or delete code (Joomla's default one will strip your content of any Javascript)

Lastly, if none of the above work I would try contacting the developers of Acajoom and informing them of your problem.
