do I have to send a Mississippi preliminary notice via certified mail, and do I have to include the estimated dollar amount of material to be supplied on the project in the preliminary notice?

A Mississippi preliminary notice is governed by §85-7-407(2).  Under this statute, the notice should be sent by registered or certified mail, statutory overnight mail, or even by email with a confirmed receipt.

As far as the actual contents of the notice, MS law requires a description of the labor, services, or materials being provided and, if known, the contract price or anticipated value of the labor, services, or materials to be provided. Therefore, if you so have this amount readily available, it should be included in the notice.
