NFC is excited to offer you a comprehensive email subscription service that allows you to choose what information you wish to receive from NFC. This subscription service will offer you extensive choices ensuring that you can receive information specifically tailored to your needs and interests.

With this new service you will be able to:

Create a Customized User Profile of information you wish to receive from across NFC for all topics of interest (e.g., product offerings, payroll updates, procedure manuals, newsletters, publications, customer notification, etc.). This new service offers a single profile for e-mail subscriptions per subscriber instead of requiring you to join disparate lists.

Control Your Profile with the freedom to change or update email addresses, sign up for new items, or unsubscribe at any time.

Receive Timely Communication through this automated service.

Trust the Communication Source because this service employs a certified email capability which provides a special "trusted email" marker in emails sent to major ISPs such as Yahoo, Google, Outlook, etc. This means we can ensure reliable delivery of messages to your email inbox in a proven, secure manner.

Have Trouble Reading our Emails?

Our emails are sent out in an HTML format, which basically means we designed them to look good when you view them in your desktop or mobile email client, but not all email clients are created equal. If you’re having difficulty viewing an email from us, you can click the link at the top of the email to view it in a web browser.

Do you need a plain text version of the email? No problem, you can view an accessible (508) version of the email by turning on your email client’s plain text, email format option. This option differs between each client so we’ve listed the steps for some of the more common email clients below.

  1. Open the email you want to view as text.
  2. Click on the arrow at the top right corner of your message. You will see a drop down menu.
  3. Select 'Message text garbled' this will open the text version of this message.
Mail App (Mac)
  1. Open the email you want to view as text.
  2. Go to 'View' on the top tool bar.
  3. Then select 'Message' and 'Plain Text Alternative.'
  1. Under the 'View' toolbar select 'Message Body As.'
  2. Then select 'Plain Text.'
Blackberry devices
  1. In your message list press the 'Menu' key.
  2. Then select 'Options' and 'Email Settings.'
  3. Next change 'Enable HTML Email' to 'No.'
  4. Press the 'Menu' key again and click save.

The settings are different depending on which version of Outlook you are using. For a list of instructions, please visit Microsoft’s Support page explaining it in more detail.
