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 Nextgov to address your.name@your.domain.com

So, here are the simple guidelines. If this line in the duplicate newsletters specifies different addresses, then click the “unsubscribe” link toward the bottom right of your newsletter. This should direct you to a Preference Center where you can manage your newsletter settings for a particular newsletter brand or unsubscribe from communications from that brand entirely. If you are not able to access the Preference Center, please email us at one of the following addresses below:

  • news@e.govexec.com
  • news@e.nextgov.com
  • news@e.defenseone.com

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(s) that our email is sent from. If your organization has blocked any incoming emails from the following domains , you will not receive any email from us:

  • news@e.govexec.com
  • news@e.nextgov.com
  • news@e.defenseone.com

Please contact your network administrator about whitelisting these domains. If you need additional information on whitelisting, please contact us at webmaster@govexec.com.

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

Nextgov does not sell its e-mail 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 Nextgov.com e-mail 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 Nextgov.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.

If you have any trouble finding what you need, please let us know at webmaster@govexec.com

How can I get permission to reprint something I read on the Web or in your e-mail newsletters?

There are three different types of permission for Web articles:

1.Permission for federal employees to reproduce articles for conferences, training etc. Permission is granted on a case-by-case basis. If permission is granted reprints must be accompanied by a tagline giving credit to Government Executive. To request such permission, e-mail webmaster@govexec.com

Targeting cookies may be set through our site by our advertising partners. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on other sites. They do not store directly personal information, but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.

Social media cookies are set by a range of social media services that we have added to the site to enable you to share our content with your friends and networks. They are capable of tracking your browser across other sites and building up a profile of your interests. This may impact the content and messages you see on other websites you visit. If you do not allow these cookies you may not be able to use or see these sharing tools.
