    I’m trying to track my son’s J5 player that was ordered on July 20 and shipped on Aug 7. He was at an intake facility when the player was ordered and since then has been sent to his permanent facility prior to receiving the player.

    I went to email services and added money to my son’s JPay account to be able to send him an email. Now I can’t find the email link. What am I doing wrong? Is there a way to post an “email” link and a “pay for stamp here” link to make things more simple?
