MailGuard® Postal Mail Elimination

MailGuard Processing Room

MailGuard® finally eliminates one of corrections longest running problems and security loopholes — contraband and secret communications in inmate postal mail. MailGuard® completely cuts off the last conduits of drugs and undocumented inmate communications with the outside world, eliminating contraband and streamlining inmate mail into a labor-free process. MailGuard® is used in many correctional agencies across the country, ranging in size from 100 inmate county jails, to over 50,000 inmate State Department of Corrections.

MailGuard® is a free service provided with the Smart Communications platform and works by providing your agency a virtual mailroom. We process your inmate postal mail off-site at our MailGuard™ processing center. Highly trained staff and custom high-tech equipment convert inmate postal mail into a high-definition electronic color copy, uploaded into the Smart Communications digital platform. Mail is filtered with your agency's security settings, and is automatically sent electronically to the inmate directly via the SmartTablet™ or SmartKiosk™ platform. MailGuard® creates a searchable database and opens a whole new field of intelligence for your agency, while completely removing deadly exposure to drugs and poisons from your staff and inmates.

No contraband, no mess, no labor, and no cost. Patent Pending MailGuard® transforms corrections, exclusively by Smart Communications.

The MailGuard® invention Number US 2016/0337360 A1 was invented by Smart Communications in 2015. Smart Communications currently has three individual patents pending on this technology and service. Smart Communications intends to fully prosecute any patent violations as permitted under US Law of the United States Patent Office.


The days of smoke and mirrors are over, Smart Communications is the new industry leader. Are you ready to take your inmate communications to the next level?
