The State Department is making travel warnings available by e-mail. You can sign up by visiting the Web site http://www.state.gov/www/list servs.html and asking to be added to the DOSTRAVEL list. A spokeswoman said that the e-mails, as well as travel warnings on the Bureau of Consular Affairs' Web site, http://www.travel.state.gov, are updated daily.
The State Department still offers this information via recorded message at (202) 647-5225, but it may be updated only every other day, the spokeswoman said. The department's fax-back service, at (202) 647-3000, has been inoperative since late December; it is expected to be repaired this month.
