eMessaging allows family and friends to communicate with an incarcerated loved one using email like messaging.

You can

  • Send a text message
  • Attach up to 5 photos
  • Share up to 5 eCards
  • Send just a photo with our Snap n’ Send TM (Mobile app only)
  • Receive an inmate reply if you prepay

How it works

  • You must have a Securus Online account and login to use eMessaging
  • Messages are sent and received from your eMessaging inbox from this website or on the Securus mobile app
  • eMessages are paid for by purchasing a book of ‘stamps’. Stamp pricing varies by facility. Once you select your inmate the stamp price will be shown.
  • Find your inmate, purchase a book of stamps and start writing your message.

All message and photos are subject to review by the facility. If a message or photos are rejected or the inmate reply is rejected you will receive a reject message in your inbox with the reason for the rejection. Stamps are not refunded if a message or photo is rejected.
