    Default Is Snailmail OK?

    Hello! A couple of years ago I was corresponding with a pp. Due to personal problems I had to stop but have recently mailed a couple of letters to a different pp. My question is in regards to this WAP correspondance. I have never used them and have just sent letters to the address given on this website. Is this still OK? I noticed a mention of the initial correspondance should be by using the WAP system which I have never done. A clarification on this would be appreciated.

    No need for the initial contact to be the WAP email system. In fact, I used it and it took much longer than it would have done had I just posted a simple letter. You did the right thing in my opinion, otherwise had you used the WAP system it being the 26th, they would have got it AFTER the 4th of november.

    Hi bkjazfan!
    I sent my first letter to my first PP through snail mail (because I wanted it to be handwritten, not typed. That way it's more personal) and it was OK, so yeah, there's no problem.
    I think the WAP system makes the correspondence easier to people who just send their first letters and want to try this out.

    BTW, I took a two year break from writing and now I'm back in town

    Happy writing!

    It took longer because you sent it after the send out date from WAP.

    I have used both ways of replying to ads, WAP and snailmail and both works fine. Of course it's OK to mail it through snailmail if you want that
    It's nice that you went back to writing a prisoner! Happy writing!
    Don't confuse your path with your destination. Just because it's stormy now doesn't mean you aren't headed for sunshine.
