Excerpt of post sent in email newsletter vs. full post

I think it would be helpful if Ghost gave creators a way to send newsletter subscribers an excerpt of their post with a link to continue reading on their site.

Currently the entire post is sent to the readers, which keeps the user off of your site and limits your opportunity to continue drawing them in with relevant content that you have already published. Also, when it is in their inbox it much easier for them to get distracted by other emails and not fully engage with your content…

I know Wordpress has that feature but Ghost does not at this time. I messaged Ghost about this feature and they suggested I post here to gauge community support. I can see that this feature has already been requested in 2021 here

I’d like this too. Must be relatively straight forward to do, a bit like inserting the public preview line for member/paid only posts.
