This should get an easy answer, but as we all know with IDOC there can be a million different answers to the easiest question. I just sent my LO at Stateville R & C 3 books. The 3 of them couldn't fit into one manila envelope so I mailedthem in two separate envelopes--3 books in one and 1 book in the other. My question is realizing they can only receive 5 books at a time, was it ok to send the 3 books in two separate envelopes? They were of the bubble wrap type and after calling the mailroom at Stateville the (very nice) person told me bubble wrap is fine, just not the fibrous material in the envelopes.

Sending all of them is fine but please remember mail is slow and possibly even slower in reception.
