Default State Inmates start to receive original mail again

Is it true. Hope so. Anyone see any articles about it.

This article HERE says a bit about it but not much detail though.

That little news item is woefully inaccurate. Starting last week, prisoners started to receive their original LEGAL mail instead of copies made in their presence. Nothing else changed.

The best list for where items should be sent is on the DOC web page, here:

I just looked at that link u posted for the mailing they don't put the institution name on the mail list like for example

Smart communications/pa doc
Inmate name and number
Name of institution
P.o. box 33028
St Petersburg to 33733

They don't have the name of the place where the inmate is at is that a typo or is that how they want it now with out the place the inmate is at

I include the facility in my addresses. theoretically, they only need the ID number because the DOC's server routs the mail accordingly. Be safe: add the facility name.
