Ne me les envoyez pas.
Don't send them to me.

The negation "ne...pas" brackets the reflexive indirect object "me", the direct object "les" and the verb "envoyez".

Dear Chris, WOW! Thank you very much for your extremely quick answer. I truly appreciate it!!! Yes, you must be a very positive speaker!!! However, we don't use any stress pronouns for the sentence like that? For example, when we say, "Send it to me"-->"Envoie-le-moi." Is this incorrect? That is the reason why I could not figure out how to make an impératif in negative form. Thank you, again!! umi

You use stress pronouns when it follows a preposition or comes at the end of the sentence. Neither is the case here, hence no stress pronoun. Greetings, -- Chris.
