Emails from Fans
From time to time I receive an email from a HubPages fan. How do they send these to me and how do I reply to them? I can't find anywhere on a hubbers page to do this.
Hi Sue, you have to go to their profile page and you click on Fan mail.... well at least that's how I've been doing it.
The email link is found on the Fan Mail section of our profile. You can respond to them via that link if you don't want to respond with your personal email. If you respond to their email directly, your personal email address will be shown. Unless you are somewhat familiar with the hubber, I suggest using the email feature on their profile page.
Whenever I receive a fan mail, I just check the fan mail and sign in to HP where I find the list of all my fans. The fan mails can be denied or approved but I have never denied any fan mail and comment as fellow hubbers are very nice. However if I am to follow hubbers then HP prompts me to send suitable fan mail also. If I do not send the fan mail then mail has to be sent separately through fan mail on member's profiel.
It looks like we're discussing two types of mail here: Fan Mail and Email.
Fan Mail is a "HubPages thing." When you follow a hubber, there's a window that pops up allowing you to send that hubber one piece of fan mail, which is visible for all of Hubland to see. We can only send one fan mail to each hubber. Just one ever.
If you didn't write a fan mail when you first followed someone, you can still go back and do it from their profile, like Alphadogg was saying. There's "Activity...Content...Followers...Following...FAN MAIL" Click it and you can send them a fan mail.
The thing is, when you send somebody a fan mail, they can't respond. So when someone sends you a fan mail, you can't just hit, "Reply" like with a regular email.
Buuuut...you can just send them a regular email, like rebekaELLE explained. This is also accessed from the PROFILE page -> FAN MAIL page -> "send [hubber's name] an email"
I would definitely stick with the answer by chrisinhawaii, I've done all that and it works well. Good luck!

It would be delightful if there was an easier way to contact some of the Hubbers. I have not done that often, since transferring from Squidoo, however - each time I wished to, I had to remember how to do it. When I am on my profile page, and someone shows up who I am following, the message in blue...

Why would someone would send Fan Mail to a Hubber that didn't comment upon the Hubber's writing?I received Fan Mail that wasn't a comment upon something I had written. I don't understand why someone would send me Fan Mail that basically said "Hello. Nice to meet you."

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...
