    Re: What's the meaning of `have` in that context

    "You have my thanks" means, effectively, "You are now the owner of my thanks", based on the fact that I have just given you my thanks. "Have" means the same thing it usually means.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
