When you establish an account with an access provider or online service, you will be given an e-mail address. The provider will store incoming mail for you, which you must download to your own computer in order to read. Your account will also enable you to send e-mail to anyone who has an e-mail address anywhere in the world, usually at no extra cost.
In fact, there's been considerable publicity that many decision-makers, from the President to the local city council representative, have e-mail. While it's true that you can send an e-mail message to President Clinton or your U.S. senators, I wouldn't hold your breath waiting for a reply. If you're still game to try, here are the e-mail addresses of Vermont's three distinguished national legislators:
Senator James Jeffords email@example.com
Senator Patrick Leahy firstname.lastname@example.org
Representative Bernard Sanders email@example.com
You can e-mail requests for information on specific bills before Congress to the Federal Register at firstname.lastname@example.org
To reach state legislators, try the State of Vermont government web page at:
To join a mailing list, you subscribe to it by sending an e-mail message to the list administrator (usually a software program which handles subscriptions automatically). In the listings below, instructions are provided for subscribing to various mailing lists of potential relevance to non-profit managers. You send an e-mail message to the address indicated in the "SUBSCRIBE TO:" field. In the message area of your e-mail program you type in your request to subscribe, using the format given in the field "BODY OF MESSAGE:" Do not type in anything else. Extraneous text may only confuse the automated program. If you are successful, you'll receive, by e-mail, a confirmation of your request plus instructions for using the list and unsubscribing to it. Be sure to save this file, as it will be a useful reference. If you are not successful, try to send your request again or send a message to email@example.com (where "list.address" is the actual address of the list).
