This notice is being issued to advise all NWS partners of a

change to the email address used for obtaining weather products

via the NWS FTPMail service. The NWS FTPMail was established

primarily for mariners who have limited World Wide Web access

but maintain the ability to interface with NWS through email

services. The NWS FTPMail service allows users to request and

receive weather products through a simple mail transfer

protocol. By using FTPmail, a user's request is automatically

sent as either an attachment or content of an email message on

as needed. Further information for the FTPMail service can be

obtained from the following web site:


In an effort to improve service and efficiency, the NWS is

completing a system upgrade of the FTPMail service.  As part of

the upgrade, the email address used by our partners to request

weather product(s) will be changed. The following email address

will be operational on Wednesday, September 7, 2016.


New FTPMail Service Email Address:

NWS plans to decommissions the old email address, on Tuesday October 11, 2016. 

NWS recommends users begin transitioning to the new email

address on September 7, 2016 to ensure continuing responses

to FTPMail requests.


As a reminder, you must configure your email system to allow

messages originating from to prevent

accidental deletion.


Any problems experienced when using the new FTPmail address

should be reported to:
