This listserv is public listserv for both state/federal tax agency and private sector persons who are interested in motor fuel tax issues.

Why this is wonderful
You can send a message to everyone in the group by using a single address, and if someone replies to your e-mail, the answer goes out to everyone in the group.

It's a better way to network with your peers in other agencies. It's also an efficient way for FTA to send special information and news alerts directly to the appropriate audience.

How to send a message to everyone
Address/send an e-mail to [email protected].


How to get off the ListServ
Address/send an e-mail to [email protected] and put in the message body "unsubscribe mfuc." (Or go to the listserv management page)


How others can join
If there are others in your agency who ought to be on the ListServ, have that person send a message to [email protected], and put in the message body "subscribe mfuc". (Or go to the listserv management page)


When your ListServ e-mail is rejected
This Listserv cannot handle E-mail attachments. If you need to send an attachment, you will have to individually address your e-mail.

Subscribe digest
Hate getting a lot of daily e-mails but like to keep up? This feature is for you. In the digest mode, you receive one e-mail each day that contains everything posted to the ListServ that day. (If there is no ListServ activity that day, you receive nothing.) Send your subscribe digest message to: [email protected] include the words "subscribe digest mfuc" in the body. (Or go to the listserv management page)


How to improve your message
It will be very helpful to everyone if you (1) make your subject line as descriptive as possible; and (2) remember to include your name and agency at the end of the message. Otherwise, in some e-mail systems, it can be nearly impossible to figure out who sent the message. (Phone numbers are also helpful).


That strange "Out of Office" message
FTA has done everything we can to make sure the technology works flawlessly. However, there will be times when someone's Out of Office message flows through to everyone on the ListServ. This isn't supposed to happen -- it's supposed to flow through only once, to the one individual who originally posted the question. (That one we can't stop.) However, the technology isn't yet perfect. Occasionally Out of the Office gets through to everyone. Thus, we ask anyone using an automatic Out-of-Office reply to please unsubscribe (Or go to the listserv management page and unsubscribe).


Another way we can help
If you need to send a personal e-mail to an individual on the ListServ whose address you don't have, send a message to Ron Alt. I'll give you that individual's address.
