If I had to hazard a guess, I would say correspondence is usually an uncountable noun like fruit, content, water, etc. but when making a distinction between different types a plural 's' is introduced. For example, you might usually say "I ate a lot of fruit this morning," rather than "I ate many fruits this morning," but "Fruits and vegetables are high in vitamins." Or, "That magazine packs in a lot of content for your buck," but "Please empty the contents of your bag."
I don't think it would be incorrect to say, "Organizing the week's correspondences is a tedious task."
Sorry for the mediocre examples.
