Question anyone other than jpay do emails?

I was looking on [please, if you can't make the email addy show up, there's a reason - don't try to fix it] for writing supplies, and I noticed an email section. Looks like you can set up email accounts w/ return snail mail addresses and email the inmate.

Has anyone tried this? And does it work for TDCJ inmates?? My man has is at a facility that doesn't have the JPAY email. Alot of his friends ask about him, but don't really have time to send snail mail, so I was thinking this would be great for our situation. But I wanted to see if anyone else has had any experience w/ this service. Thanks.

ok just looked and it seems absolutely pointless for me, because they mail the emails to them from Dallas. I can mail my own letters cheaper and quicker!! haha oh well --- Im just hoping jpay gets set up where my guy is so they print it out at the actual prison where he is at!!!

I have a question, (i don't want to get banned or anything) but why on the "problems w/ online paper vendors" thread, are many other websites listed and spelled out (including the one i stated here) and are not deleted or removed by a mod?

Why is jpay allowed and no other? Is someone getting a kickback from jpay?

If i could add MORE thanks to your comment, I would!! lol. That's what I wanna know!! And why can someone else say the same website, (and others) in another post, but mine is completely removed!!.

Incidently, I went ahead and signed up for the email service with said website.. they took my money, and I can't email him. They have no customer service number, and are not responding to my emails. If i don't hear something from them soon, I'm calling the BBB. It would have been nice to maybe have some insight from someone here, before I signed up for it. I guess maybe I just don't have as much clout as other members, or something.

I tried one out back in April and it turned out that my husband was not getting them in a timely manner at all. I was sending him 2-4 a day every day but he wasn't getting them all, and when he did he might get one I sent Wednesday before he got the one I sent on Tuesday. So I canceled it, it was a waste of my money. He was getting my snail mail better.

So I talked to the mod, and it's not about jpay being allowed or preferred. They just haven't had any incidents or something w/ jpay, so the name is not blocked.
