If you have access to them, check your server logs. Heres a question about apache log analyzer software which could help you on your way. This will help verify if google analytics is doing something wrong.
I've personally got real doubts with the effectiveness of "cold calling" email marketing. I don't think I've ever tried a website for the first time as a result of an email.
In terms of the sites I help look after, the newer sites are close to 95% search engine driven, the longer the domain has been around the lower this number drops. Even with 6 year old domains its still > 70%
