- Issue: “Why does it say my inmate is unavailable?”
Answer: Sometimes, the chance that the inmate has to access the messaging will be restricted by the correctional institution. During the period, there is no way for you to contact the inmate. You will get a notification when they are available to be contacted.
- Issue: “How do I unblock an inmate?”
Answer: If you want to unblock an inmate, it is a must for you to send a written request to the institution to let them know that you would like the block to be removed. The appropriate mailing address is able to be found in www.bop.gov. Once the block is removed, the inmate has to re-add your email to generate a new invitation to you with a new id code. After receiving that, please log in to your Corrlinks account and then add the id number.
- Issue: “It says I have unread messages but It can’t see them”
Answer: By default, the inbox shows up messages that have been received in the last two weeks. Seeing all the unread messages can be done by clicking the Unread Messages Only checkbox. If the messages are still nowhere to be seen, please try deleting your temporary internet files.
- Issue: “I am not getting an email alert when I get a new message”
Answer: There are some options that you can try. First, you will need to make sure that your account has been set up to send email alerts for the inmate. Second, check the spam or junk mail to see if they are there. Third, try to add firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com to your Contacts or Trusted Senders.
- Issue: “My issue is not listed”
Answer: If the issue that you are currently facing is not included on the list, you can send comments or questions. Do not forget to include your name, your email address, and the correctional agency you are inquiring about.
