Editing up the newsletters and distributing them are two totally
separate tasks.  Why not use Mailman (like as wot this list uses) for
the distribution and leave your marketing people to prepare the missives
in whatever way they fancy.  You can set up Mailman so that only
nominated people can post to the list, and it seems to meet all your
specified requirements.
