Should I sign up for an account if I only want to contact BOP inmates?
Only if you have received a subscription request from an inmate. You will receive an email from the system between 9/9/09 and 10/6/09 inviting you to subscribe in order to continue email communication with a BOP inmate. Until then, you do not have to do anything and can continue to email as in the past.
We do not charge you for using this system to email Federal inmates.
