News > Receive STB News: Mailing List

The Surface Transportation Board uses an automated list server to maintain its electronic news release mailing list. Additions or deletions to the list are performed by the list's subscribers by sending an e-mail message to the list server requesting an action to be performed. It is mandatory that the user place the appropriate command in the body of the e-mail message, else an error message will be returned.

To add your e-mail address to the subscription list, send the words "subscribe stbnews" (without the quotation marks) in the subject line and as the body of your e-mail to stbnewslistserver@stb.dot.gov.

To remove your e-mail address from the subscription list, send the words "unsubscribe stbnews" (without the quotation marks) in the subject line and as the body of your e-mail to stbnewslistserver@stb.dot.gov.

To receive general information regarding the STB News List Server, send "information stbnews" (without the quotation marks) in the subject line and as the body of your e-mail to stbnewslistserver@stb.dot.gov.

All commands (e.g. Subscribe, UnSubscribe, Help, Lists, Information) must be sent to the List Server, NOT to the list. Use the addresses referenced above. When a command is sent to the List it is not processed.

To receive help about the STB News List Server, send "help stbnews" (without the quotation marks) in the subject line and as the body of your e-mail to stbnewslistserver@stb.dot.gov The List Server will respond with information about how to subscribe, unsubscribe and to obtain general information about the STB News list-serve system.
