Hey ladies. My man just Transferred to KVSP from CCI a week ago today, wondering how long it took to receive the first letter from your LO when they first went in vs how long it usually took from another California prison. Thanks!! Hoping to receive some new mail soon!

I'm pretty sure it's 15 max. I think I've sent more but they were printouts with multiples on a page, not individual photos.

Is it just me or is my mail taking months to get to me? Anyone having the same problems? I barely got a letter from like the end of July, and no mail for August yet

Mine coming out of D hasn't been that slow, but it seems like they aren't getting postmarked until four days or so after he puts them out. So I get three or four at a time. :/
Hopefully things pick up for you soon!

Lucky Lady.... You at least got mail. I too am having similar problems to yours. I haven't received ANYTHING and I'm getting extremely frustrated!!! He tells me that he writes letters and has sent cards to me but NOTHING has gotten to me I too have written and sent him stuff and only ONE letter has got through to him since June I ask if he is under investigation and he says NO... We have NEVER had this problem before... We are wondering what gives??? He thinks its my postal services and I blame KVSP end.... Who can I talk to at KVSP regarding this issue???? The mail room??? Or his counselor??? Any advice is welcomed.

That's super weird. Mine has been coming through fine. I get his letters in about 4-5 days. I wonder what's going on with your mail. Hope it gets better fast!

WOW!!!! I'm gonna be calling tomorrow to see what they tell me, because something is definitely wrong and I know it has to do with KVSP and not the USPS. I spoke to my mister tonight and he was pissed when I told him that I still haven't received anything in the mail... He told me that the last letter he sent me was two Sundays ago!!! Something definitely is wrong and I need to see what's up!

Does anyone remember if it's 25 or 50 printed internet pages per envelope? I want to send my husband something for the cdcr handbook but it's 275 pages. I have a feeling it's going to be a lot of envelopes lol
