I want to make a correction to the email address noted by Packy46. The correct address is President@whitehouse.gov and I have placed an article I found while researching for the correct email address and pasted it below for reference.

Semper Fidelis.

Well, I recieved this petition in the form of an e-mail today...signed it....forwarded it.....then noticed something peculiar. I will insert a quote of an e-mail which I sent to the person I received it from as well as to those I sent it to. Make of it what you will, for good or bad.

"Hello fellow pettitioners,
Although I have participated, signing and forwarding this petition, you
should alll know that the address that this will be sent to certainly isn't
President Bush's "inbox" as has been indicated(comments@whitehouse.com). Dot
com is a commercial address as are all .com's. Whitehouse.com appears to be
a site disseminating info about all candidates for president, but is not
affiliated in any way with the government of the US as is stated on their
homepage. The official site for the white house ends with dot
gov(whitehouse.gov). I don't really plan on researching whether or not
whitehouse.com is any sort of legitimate(unaffiliated, unbiased)
organization. It certainly may be, and who knows, maybe this information
will somehow reach the people who need to see it. On the other hand, it may
simply be a marketing tool in order to obtain legitimate e-mail addresses
for "whitehouse.com" to send to or sell in the future...e-mail addresses
that can now be matched to your real name as people can go backwards thru
the string of forwarding and match your name with it's corresponding e-mail
address. Am I being paranoid...I don't know...maybe it's nothing. Then
OK, I did a little checking, the poll appears to be legitimate. Put out by
the organization
However, the address they said it would be sent to is
"president@whitehouse.gov". Somewhere along the way in the string, this
address got changed to comments@whitehouse.com (comments@whitehouse.com), a polling website. Either a
mistake was made somewhere along the line, or the string of e-mails was
"hijacked" to point it to the .com site. The nature of this type of
dissemination means that many of the "copies' of this e-mail pettition will
never reach "president@whitehouse.gov"...who knows how many will be lost.
Feel free to send this backward down the string of pettitioners so they all
may know how we've been "hood-winked". To those who I forwarded the petition to....If you feel like it, you may change the address at the bottom of the e-mail to president@whitehouse.gov (president@whitehouse.gov), so that the last person sends it to the right place. I will post at ALIPAC to let them know what happened."

I haven't started one myself so can't help you there. However, I have to possibly recant some of the info I just posted. I just went to the White House website and I could not find the email address previously posted. Although the email address they do provide is as follows, sorry for screw the up.


Here's the URL to the site too for reference: http://www.whitehouse.gov/contact/
