Hi everyone

I wrote my first PP yesterday but because I was so excited for them to receive it I emailed them instead of writing a letter. I was just wondering how long it would take for them to receive my email? 
Also when talking about prison life how far can you take the conversation because I know everything gets read before they can see it.

In my experiences some facility are faster than others when it comes down to passing on the emails sent out to the pp. It can be a matter of 2 to 48 hours. Plus to keep in mind if the pp has email money to reply. I never hold back with my questions about prison. One of my pps told me once that they don’t really care what we write about as long as it’s not a security issue to them. For example talking about ways to escape or how to make booze out of I don’t know what kind of stuff. Things like that would raise a red flag. But any other than that, I ask about the crimes they committed especially if they been in more than once. The best person to ask is your pp though.
