Corrlinks

Hi everyone!

My pp has requested my email for us to use corrlinks aswell as write letters. Im happy to do this, just not sure how it works. Can someone give me an explanation on whats involved. Am i best waiting for his email to get started or can i start up before?

Thanks!

Once you give him your email address he will add you to his list. You will then receive an email from Corrlinks asking you to go to their website and enter in the code that they sent along with said email. Then usually you wait an hour or two and that's when you can email back and forth. Because once you log in then and go to Account Management>Manage Inmate list... The little box behind his name (far right) will say status pending.. After the hour or two it says something like "approved" or "ready".. I can't remember what word exactly, but point is...then you're ready to email ! Oh and once it's been approved and what not, there is a box next to his name (far right again)... that you can check... "email alert"... that way you get email notifications sent to your email inbox whenever he sends you a message. :)

If I had a pound for everytime you write this.... lol

No no, it's not that it's just it gets asked so many times. There is a search function on the top right, most of the time there has been a tonne of threads about any questions you have. It just gets a bit tiresome for us who have been here a while to see the same thing over and over, you know?

Thanks to those that replied :) Have great days!

You will probably find more in depth answers to your questions in older threads, tbh.

Just remember that your pal won't be able to e-mail when the facility is on lockdown. He can receive e-mails while they are on lockdown and read them later, but he can obviously not get to them when he's confined to his cell 24/7. Hopefully, he's somewhere where this does not happen often. Anyway, I just wanted to let you know so you know this is a possible reason if you don't hear from him for a long time via CorrLinks.

I started my account first too. He will add your email to his account then an email is sent with a code in. Log in, then go to account management, click manage my inmate list, drop down box of the correctional agency he is in then enter the code. It usually takes about 2 hours from when my pp writes me an email to me recieving it.

You have done everything correct, you just have to wait for it to be verified his end now. He will contact you when its been done

I can imagine. I am waiting for my penpal to add me on Corrlinks. Since I am here, I might as well ask all you good people here.

So I already set up a corrlinks account. I keyed in his inmate number and now I just wait for him to accept? I snail-mailed him my corrlink email address afew days ago and it will take awhile to get there.

Why I hate Search Nazis!

I always search. Sometimes you may actually find the answer. But you may need a lot of time for reading all the other posts with the word you searched for in them that do not contain the answer. I just want an answer before my senile mind forgets why I wanted to know. As you can see below , quit a bit of reading to get to the answer.
