I've had some very nice and thoughtful fan mail responses. I wish there was a way I could say thank you. I'm new to HP, is there a way to contact people privately?
Welcome to HubPages! You can send private messages to other authors, if they have chosen to allow others to contact them, by visiting the person's profile, clicking Fan Mail from the options on the right side, and clicking the "Send [user name] an email" link right above where the fan mail is displayed.
You can send people a private message, but most people won't expect that.
I think you're referring to the messages people leave when the "follow" you. Some of those Hubbers will have followed you because they're genuinely interested in your writing, (in which case the pleasure they get from your writing will be thanks enough). Some will have joined because they're hoping you'll reciprocate by following them (which is a rather silly game some Hubbers play).
Either way, I think the best way to thank a Hubber is to browse their Hubs, find one you can make a meaningful comment on, and preface that comment by saying something like, "thanks for your lovely fan mail." That way you give them a concrete benefit as well as a thank-you.

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.

I have some fan mail, but whether I press accept or deny I am told there is a problem and I may want to report it. What do I do now? thanks, John

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...

Hello all. I just approved a couple of fan mails, but they don't show up on my profile. I noticed other people have their fan mail showing on their profile. I have looked through all the settings but can't figure it out. Help me if you can. Thank you!

Hello hubbers, just a teeny question - is it necessary to accept fan messages or can we just leave them?Thanks
