Yes Dan, I am already sending me Jpay messages but I will use Jmail to receive his answers through the Jmail Box. It will be faster and cheaper for him since he will send the letter in the US :)

Hi DanPal,

Jpay and Jmail are two different things. Inmates don't need to have a jmail account, it's nothing more than a PO Box type of thing. The people at Jmail scan the letters the inmates send so you get a pdf file with their letter.

Hi Elvire,
I'm sure you've checked that your pp is able to respond by JPay, right? Many inmates in Texas are only able to receive JPays but not reply through that service. They have to then reply by snail mail. It still makes it a bit faster, though, if one of the parties is able to JPay now and then :)

Yes it will be a bit more expansive for me but cheaper for him (since they are not paid to work in Texas, it can make a difference for him). And I will move three times in the next 8 months so I guess it will be easier to keep track !

I use jmail for two of my pals. It's not that much cheaper if you have the letters from your pals sent there, since you pay $1 to download that letter too. It is faster, since the letters stay within the US.

Do you know about this website? I would be interested in using it  for the mailbox address.

"It only costs the inmate a first class stamp to send the letter rather than international postage.
We receive the letters usually within 3-5 days of being sent so it gets to you faster than international shipping."

And then they scan the letter. You have to pay 25$ a year for the box and 1$ to receive the scan letter (1$ for 6 images pages, then 2$ for 7-11).

I would be interesting to speed the thing up and it would cost less for my PP since I won't have to pay for international postage (I am from Europe). What do you think?

I've not tried using them, but as they are an international company I would expect TDCJ to treat them the same as Amazon etc.

Anything that the mailroom denies, the inmate is given the option to return to sender at the inmate's expence, or destroy.

That's why it would be best to try on something that isn't very important, just in case.
