I forget to check my profile only to realize way later that someone left fanmail. I feel bad approving fanmail who knows how long later.
How about some notification, like the comments or a section on the stats page?
I get an email notifying me of fanmail. Have you checked your email settings with hubpages?
It all shows in my hubtivity if I get fanmail, and whether I have approved it or not.
Yes, if I happen to catch it on my hubtivity, I see it. But I don't get the email. I'll check my settings right now.
I allow HubPages to contact me and others to contact me. I do not have receive email from authors checked. Is that it? I turned that off a while back because I was getting overwhelmed with notifications of new hubs.
I would think that would come from HP, but I don't know for sure.
Peter, I think it is the one where you allow HubPages to contact you. But I'm not sure. It would be good to get some clarification for that from the HP space crew.
I definitely do get an email whenever someone leaves me fanmail, but I also have all of the boxes checked.
Peter, I actually just got fanmail, and the email from hubpages said:
We just wanted to let you know that one of your fans, so-and-so, has just posted a piece of fan mail to your HubPages profile:
Please visit your profile page to approve or deny their message.
Well, I have never received such an email. Maybe one of the powers that be can enlighten me.
At the moment, whether you receive fan mail or not is controlled by "Receive email from your favorite authors?" checkbox. However, it seems to me like it's better if it were controlled by "Allow HubPages to contact you?". So that may change soon.

For several months now (almost since I joined hubpages) I have been getting harassing, threatening and ridiculous comments from the same person. I originally encountered her in a forum, and she has not left me alone since. She repeatedly leaves me harassing fan mail, none of which has...

I tried to leave fanmail both yesterday and today but could not. Instead, I get the message, "You don't have fanmail." Anyone else having this issue?

Might be dumb question, but how do you respond to Fanmail? I went into the fanmailers profile but there was no button to send him a note

Hi Matthew and fellow geniuses!I just got my 4th or so oddly disturbing email to my Fan Mail Page in recent weeks. Is there a way you could just add a reporting flag on these just like most other places so that it's easier/faster for us all to deal with? If not what's the process I should have used...

Although I love having followers, I don't always want to follow them in return. Yet I do want to respond directly to fanmail they left. Is there a way of doing that?

I genuinely became a fan of some of the women preachers here yet they rejected my fan mail. Why? I love you and want to admire you and show my utmost respect for the work you do for my church. And I get rejected:Your fanmail was not approved by yolanda...
