I think that the email should have read "Thanks heaps for your help" Heaps = a lot. so Thanks a lot for your help.

I agree with Michael. I think this is a typically Australian use, where ''heaps'' is used to mean ''a lot'' or even ''very'' (eg. The party was heaps good. There were heaps of people there.)
