  • EMCOMM Monthly—feisty, informative, intelligent email letter put out by; no longer published, but great material and archived issues available on their website.
  • VT ARES Email ReflectorThe VTARES Email Reflector is a moderated reflector, meaning that all messages for the group must be reviewed and approved prior to being forwarded on to the list. Therefore, it may take a number of hours before a post to the group will be distributed. The normal volume of traffic is pretty light, but in a deployment or emergency situation expect its use to increase, becoming a main communications venue within the ARES group.
    To subscribe to the VTARES Email Reflector, simply click on the “Subscribe” link and send the email that is generated. No additional subject or body text is necessary. You will receive an email shortly thereafter asking for confirmation of your request to join. You will be given two membership options:
           - Join the Group will provide you with the most features, while '
          - Join the Mailing List will simply provide you with a copy of all emails sent to the reflector.
    However, as VT ARES has a comprehensive web site, little use will be made of the Yahoo Group features other than the email reflector, so the recommendation is to 'Join the Mailing List' only.
          To un-subscribe from the VTARES Email Reflector, simply click on the “Unsubscribe” link and send the email that is generated. No additional subject or body text is necessary.
