We run a Pfam helpdesk, which handles annotation comments, data enquiries and general problems with the Pfam database and websites. We use a request tracking system to monitor emails to the helpdesk, so you should receive an automated response to your email, letting you know that the system has logged your mail and notified us of its arrival.
