Could you help me to respond this email in an appropriate and polite way? I send an email to a professor and asked him about available PhD positions. He responded to my email as: Dear Faisal: Unfortunately, I am not accepting any new students in preparation for my retirement. With best wishes, Rama Bhat Now I'd like to respond to him in a polite way. I'd like to say that although I'm sad about that he can't accept me, I really appreciate his quick response. Thank you for your helps in advance.

Dear Professor Bhat: I very much appreciate your quick response. I had very much wanted to be one of your students. I wish you, sir, a very happy and productive retirement. Sincerely yours, Faisal [last name]

All you need to do is use "the fact," before the "that," in your own message and then you have answered your own question. You might want to add a wish for a happy retirement. Why not have a go at writing something yourself, and then post it in the corrections thread (Notebook)?
