Response from Thank You Letter

Hello,

I just finished a phone interview with the hiring manager. I e-mailed him
a formal thank you letter afterward. At the same time, I was setup to have
second phone interview with another manager. In light of this, should
I expect to hear back from him (regarding the thank you letter)?

I am probably just unnescessarily being paranoid, but since thank you letter
can be a crucial factor, I am just wondering whether he gets it or not.

No, don't mention it.

Doing so might make you look like you're rubbing up to him/her which isn't a good thing.
If they mention it, so much the better of course

Thank's Jeroen for the warning.
I guess it is the lack of corporate experience that triggers my paranoid.

If you send a thank you letter, I suggest you send a physical thank you note instead of an email. There's really no such thing as a 'formal' email. Just my $0.02. And I agree, never follow up on a thank you note. You probably will not hear back from him unless he's calling you for a follow-up interview.
