Why am I getting duplicate e-mail newsletters?

You may be receiving duplicates of our email newsletters because you are subscribed with two different email addresses that are routed to the same destination. For example you may be subscribed as JDoe@govexec.com and JohnDoe@govexec.com. Or it might be something like this: JDoe@govexec.com and JDoe@mail.govexec.com.

At the very bottom of our email newsletters there is a line that reads:
This message was sent from GovExec.com to address your.name@your.domain.com

So, here are the simple guidelines. If this line in the duplicate newsletters specifies different addresses, then point your browser to http://www.govexec.com/newsletters/ and enter the unwanted email address in the text field and click on the "Remove From All" button.

If you are also a print magazine subscriber it would be a good idea to keep the same email address that you have in your profile at http://www.omeda.com/custsrv/ge/.

If duplicate email newsletters are being sent to the same exact address, send an email to webmaster@govexec.com with the full internet headers from both copies, so we can investigate the situation and resolve the problem. We apologize for any inconvenience.

I have suddenly stopped getting your e-mail newsletters and I didn't unsubscribe. Why?

Often when this happens, the problem is that your organization's mail server is blocking the domain that our email is sent through. If your organization has blocked any incoming email from domain govexec-media.com, you will not receive any email from us. Please contact your network administrator about these domains.

What is your privacy policy for your e-mail newsletters?

Government Executive does not sell its email list to any third parties, nor do we "swap" lists with other organizations. You will not begin receiving "spam" from third party groups as a result of your being a subscriber to GovExec.com email newsletters. Occasionally we do send out information to our subscribers on internal promotions. Since our promotions and conferences often deal with many of the same topics on GovExec.com, we find that most of our subscribers are pleased to learn about them. For many people, it is the only way they learn about them as they do not subscribe to the print magazine. But to ensure we do not wear out our welcome, we try to use the medium only with the most important promotions from the magazine.

Why don't you track the F and G Funds?

Can I put the TSP Ticker on my site?

While we're thrilled when people link to our site and the ticker, we still want it to remain exclusively on GovExec.com.

The TSP Ticker is a very important information source for our readers and thus a key driver of traffic to the home page of GovExec.com. As such, we believe it's important to protect the proprietary nature of the TSP Ticker.

Does a bill to buy out all CSRS employees exist?

Rumors abound about a bill that would offer buyouts to all employees in the Civil Service Retirement System. The bill most often cited is HR 28344. This is an old hoax and no such bill exists. The faux bill is allegedly sponsored by two members of Congress who don't exist ("Bill Chavez D-N.M." and "Lynn Faust D-Calif.")
