Subject: Re: 5.759 Kurdish protest, linguistic human rights violations

 Thank you for writing to President Clinton via electronic
mail. Since June 1993, whitehouse.gov has received over 250,000
messages from people all over the world.

 Although the volume of mail prevents the President from
personally reviewing each message, the mail is read by White House
staff. Your concerns, ideas, and suggestions are carefully
recorded and communicated to the President weekly with a
representative sampling of the mail. We are currently working
toward responding to your messages electronically.

 Whitehouse.gov was established to allow you to send
electronic correspondence to the President and Vice President.
The only valid addresses at whitehouse.gov are the following:

 Presidentwhitehouse.gov
and Vice.Presidentwhitehouse.gov

 You may be interested in obtaining White House
documents and publications, such as the President's Weekly Radio
Address to the Nation. We have an address for requesting and
receiving these publications by email. The address is:

 publicationswhitehouse.gov

To receive instructions, please send a message to the address
above (**do not "reply" to the memo you are now reading**). In
the body of your message, type "Send Info" (without quotes); no
other text should be included (i.e., message headers or signature
lines (.sig files)). The instructions will be sent to you
automatically.

 Also, we now have a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) document
available at the following address. The FAQ, among other things,
lists other sources of government information, i.e., the
Congressional email projects. You may not make comment to this
FAQ address. It is an autoresponder only. Send an email message
(no text necessary) to:

 faqwhitehouse.gov

 All of us at the White House are excited about the progress
that has been made with this historic project, and we look
forward to future developments. Your continued interest and
participation is very important to us.

 Sincerely,

 Stephen K. Horn
 Director
 Presidential E-Mail
