Default mail probs??

mizz jp.. my boo been in reception for a month now, n i dont got no probs with mail... i usually get his letter 3 -4 days after the postmarked date. no later than 4 days. my mail gets to his no more than 5 days after the date postmarked. i thought the mail process was gonna b really bad.. but it runs pretty smooth. i just make sure that i write exactly what i enclosed on the outside of the envelope, even if its just a letter. the only prob w/mail i have is that i sent him a letter when he was in twin towers n supposedly it was gonna follow him to delano since he was transferred b4 he received it... but till now he hasnt got it. its been bout a month n 1/2. but other than that it should b cool...

A lil help please? I'm so confused. Some people say that I can send 20 plain blank envelopes and 20 stamps and others say that N.K.S.P. only accepts 40 prestamped envelopes. So which is right? Oh and what type of paper can I send, is it 25 single sheets or can I send a legal notepad? Thank you!

Thank you! All of this is so confusing to me. There is a lot of info but not too sure whats right. I wrote to my friend 3 weeks ago and I still haven't received anything from him. I would usually get something in the mail a week later but this time is taking forever! I hope they receive our mail soon!

Its been a while, but I believe that to reception you can send 20 envelopes & 20 pieces of papre & a book of stamps or 20 prestamped envelopes and 20 pieces of paper... for mainline you can send more.

Can anyone confirm how long it takes for our mail to make it in the hands of our loved ones in prison? I sent mail to my husband on the 23rd of Dec and don't believe he has gotten any of my letters. I've written at least 10 time since that date.
On another note, I have received three letters from him since he was addmitted into prison on the 21st of December. His letters make it to my home in about 3 days.

Unhappy ladies

i understand your frustration but one thing u guys need to remember.. the holidays just passed.. so mail is slow.. there was 2 days of each week that mail didn't work apart from the usual 3 days they don't get mail.. Thursday is the last day mail goes out from their end. and it's the last day they get any from us.. at least on my hubbys yard... ive been hearing D yard is going slow..too.. but it all depends on the yard and the mail room it isn't your guys it's the ppl working the mail room... and there isn't a thing we can say or do cause they are lame

Thank You BamBam for your response. I will work on my patience. I am just really worried and want him to know that I am writing to him. I think he is aware that mail is slow because in his letters, he does not questions why he hasnt received any letters.

I posted this on another forum under North Kern.. but maybe it will help someone here concerning mail -- My guy is in B Yard --- maybe every yard is different........
My guy is a daily writer and I have not received anything since 12/31 and that letter was dated 12/26. I send letters with delivery tracking so I can check when it is actually delivered to NKSP mailbox. He lets me know the date he actually receives each letter. We also number our letters so he can tell if he is missing any and so can I. Kern is horrible. Takes them 7-9 days from time of receipt to deliver..and he receives 2-3 letters at a time. He is missing several letters as am I. I too am new to all this.. but I hope this info helps you.

Thank you LindiLou! I sent my first letter on December 23rd. I still dont have confirmation that he has received any of them. I have received 3 letters from him. I hope on my next letter from him I get confirmation that he is getting mail from me.

In ur case mail is slow as is but when hes moved mail is a bit slower cause it needs to be redirected but it will get to him
