The Navy is modernizing its method for sending emails to Sailors aboard submarines, effective June 30. The 25-year-old 'Sailor Mail' will be migrating to the 'Direct Delivery' system. With Direct Delivery, some attachments may be allowed. Overall, families will see little change in the basic system for keeping in touch with their loved ones. Follow these steps to ensure a smooth transition between services: (1) Do not send emails with large attachments; (2) Send emails in plain text; (3) If you do not receive a response daily, please be patient. Some current operations will prohibit the transmission of unclassified email at times; and (4) Remember, what you write is likely to be read by a human reviewer on board. For more information, contact your prospective squadron office.
