General Mail rules

You may send letters, greeting- and postcards. The greeting-cards must be fully filled in  (not just the insert), otherwise the card will be returned.
The name and address of the sender has to be legibly written on the envelope. We do recommend to mention the address in the letter as well, in case the envelope gets opend and damaged in the mailroom.
It is allowed to send US-stamps to an Alabama inmate. You may also send money orders in your letter.


Please, ask your pen pal about the up-to-date mailing rules, photo rules and gift rules.  Since these rules change very fast, it's not always possible for us to make a valid assessment of these stipulations.
