Subject:   FTPMail Service Upgrade/Transition to start

           September 7, 2016 with completion by October 6, 2016

 

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:

 

http://www.nws.noaa.gov/tg/ftpmail_using.php

 

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.FTPMail.OPS@noaa.gov

The old email address, ftpmail@ftpmail.nws.noaa.gov. is planned

for decommissioning on Thursday October 6, 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 NWS.FTPMail.OPS@noaa.gov to prevent

accidental deletion.

 

Any problems experienced when using the new FTPmail address

should be reported to:
