Default Can inmates use email in Oregon?

Got a letter from Oregon and it had an email with it for cards and stuff. I guess this is allowed here? Not in texas

You mean an e-mail adress?

No, in Oregon they can use messaging only through Telmate (GettingOut) or Accesscorrections (for which they need an mp3). It could be even possible that JPay is also available but I never used it.
However, my man is at TRCI and they are currently introducing tablets (they have lockdowns because of the installation lately) so maybe, if your contact is at other OR facilities that already have tablets, there are new ways to communicate on that device.

I assume the intention is it to be dealt through a third party's e-mail address.

There was an email address where you could buy cards? Or there was an email where you could email an inmate directly? I'm a little confused about the question.

Mrs Tudor is correct. At this time, there is no way to directly email an inmate using a normal email address (like a gmail address). Email can be sent through AccessCorrections or TelMate (GettingOut), but both of those are web-based systems. The tablets are slowly rolling out and perhaps they will allow inmates to have a gmail (or similarly limited) email access, though it seems unlikely given that they'd have no way to monitor the contents of the emails.

I'm looking forward to the day when I can email my friends inside directly from my phone without having to wait for AccessCorrections servers to wake up. They've been really really slow for about a year now (the servers themselves. If I can actually get a message written, then the recipient will receive it fairly quickly).

Seems as if there are some artists trying to sell their stuff through a third party person.

A lot of inmates make cards to "sell" on the inside. Some of them are amazing!

Can you post a link to the website? I'd be curious to see if this is the Pen's official online store or if it's truly third party (in which case, buyer beware!)
