I use this as a confirmation. Typically in a follow-up email to a phone call so that I can get written confirmation of the discussion and ensure we are all clear on what is being done.

I don't want to have to tell you again so I'm going to be passive aggressive with my thank you in hopes that it will guilt you into doing it.
