The Mail Room allows your prisoners to receive mail from the outside world (i.e. the prisoners' families). Sacks of unsorted mail will arrive at deliveries daily at 8am and are subsequently moved to the mail room.

The mail is sorted by prisoners or guards at the sorting desk and then placed into a mail satchel. Delivery of the mail is made by either a guard or a prisoner. Reading mail satisfies a prisoner's Family, Recreation and Comfort needs.

Incoming unsorted Mail can also be a source of contraband, so plan accordingly.

Maximum number of jobs for the room is 20 at a size of 240m (12 tiles per worker).

Requirements Edit

  • Minimum Size: 5 x 5
  • Indoors
  • Sorting Desk
  • Table

Tips Edit

  • Using a regular door (not staff, not jail) seems to have an effect on the efficiency of the mail room, using any other type of door seems to cause it to bug out more frequently.
  • Sometimes, if you have very few workers, the amount of mail will overpower them and your deliveries will be crowded with mail. A way to fix this is to create another, more isolated deliveries section that is labeled "shared" then, workers will carry new mail to that section.
