Angry He gets other mail, but not mine. Any ideas why this could be happening?

I have never had this problem before and unsure of what actions to take.

I have had a recent issue with my mail taking so long to reach him. On average, it would take 4-5 days. Now, it's taking 2+ weeks. I know the holidays are busy, but he got a letter mailed October 20th on November 3rd! I've mailed at the least 12 letters since then and that Oct 20th letter was the last letter he has gotten. STILL! I got a letter from him today and he's thinking that I'm upset with him or something.

I am having a hard time believing that this is just a slow mail room. I think that something else is going on. Everyone else is getting their mail delivered to him but he isn't getting mine.

You could call the prison and ask but if you think this is specific to the two of you, be prepared that you might not end up talking to the mailroom but an investigations unit. (((hugs)))

Perhaps the holidays but perhaps they are reviewing your letters for some reason.
My letters to my loved one average three weeks but he is in shu.
Try a service like letterquick , I bet he gets that letter faster.

Similiar situation. It usually took 2-3 days tops for him to get my letters. Now hes not getting them for 2 weeks or not at all and people who sent him letters after me hes getting. We got our visits suspended for touching and since then hes lost email and phone and now hes not getting my letters. Can they do that? Its not like I had contraband or tried sneaking something in, we got caught up for a minute and fucked up.
