Well, I just found out there's only one way I can find out if someone left me fan mail. I have to go to my account page, click on activity, then click on fanmail. Fan mail is waiting there to be approved. Oh, and, of course, through email notifications; but I don't look at those often, just happened to look at some today, that's how I found out I had fan mail. So, now I know, so I'm okay. But I'm wondering how many people actually realize this, know how to see if they got fan mail. They might have fan mail stacked up they don't even know about. I brought this up a long time ago, about not getting notifications for fan mail, and since it isn't a very pressing issue I dropped it. But I'm curious what others think; if we should get a notification or some way of seeing we got fan mail without kind of fishing for it; worse yet, maybe never find it.
NateB11, are you recommending some form of Fan Mail notification that extends beyond the on-site and optional email and mobile notifications people already get?
If so, in what form would these notifications appear?
Note: you can configure all those options here: https://hubpages.com/my/profile/email
Thanks for that link. I don't think I've looked at those configuration settings since I started about a year ago; good to know about that. But I looked at my settings there and it's already set to get notifications for fan mail in email and digest (I'm assuming that means here on HP), and mobile (which I don't use). So, from what I could tell I could only find out about fan mail that was left for me through my email or by going into my account page to look it up. I was thinking we should get notifications for fan mail from the regular drop down for notifications at the top of the page here. It would seem less likely to be overlooked that way.
Simone, I've always wished fan mail would appear on the front page list where comments do.

There should be a tab for sent messages or sent fan mail. I cannot find this anywhere on the site. Thanks!

When I get a notification that someone has posted new fan mail and I click on the link it goes to a list of my fan mail which appears to be in reverse chronological order.The new fan mail isn't even there! I have tried looking on every page of my fan mail. The new fan mail isn't on the first page...

I just got my first Nigerian scammer in my Fan Mail! You know the one, the long sob story of how someone has died and left someone money which is stuck in a bank and the writer would be very grateful if I'd help out by yadda yadda....I must say, I always thought fan mail was limited to a few...

I cannot reply to fan mail. The page won't load. Has anyone else been having this problem?

Why can't we reply to Fan Mail? I just had a Fan send me a message and I don't see anyway that I can reply to it. Is there a way? Thanks.
