FCI Loretto emailing-an-inmate

FCI Loretto uses Corrlinks to send inmates email and text messages.  The service is also known as Trulinks.

Corrlinks is a third party service that contracts with the FCI Loretto and other prisons in the Bureau of Prisons to allow inmates and their friends and family to communicate using digital secure messaging that is monitored by the institution prior to being delivered.

Corrlinks also has a video visitation service and allows inmates to receive funds that are sent to them from the outside.

In order to exchange messages from an inmate, you must first receive an invitation from the inmate, which they can do from within FCI Loretto.  There is usually a fee involved in this service, but not so for messages from/to inmates residing at facilities operated by the Federal Bureau of Prisons or CoreCivic (CCA).

The pre-approved contacts are the same that are pre-approved for visits.  This is the form that you must fill out and send back to the inmate. They will turn it in.  Approval can take several weeks.

Step 1 - Register

Register with your name, address, email and phone number.  A verification email will be sent to you.

Step 2 - Send Message

At this point you must have an invitation from an inmate, or a verifcation code will be sent to you email beforehand that allows you to send your first message to an inmate.

The screen will look like this:

Message size is limited to 13,000 characters (approximately two pages worth of text). No attachments are allowed.

All your communications will be monitored.

If you need assistance Corrlinks has a comprehensive FAQ Page and a Customer Support page. 

Everything is done online, there is no phone to call.
