Sometimes hiragana is used to tell which meaning the kanji is using. AKA furigana.

I think you have that backwards. Furigana is used to show the pronunciation of a word. Kanji in of itself shows the meaning.

if they write in all kana, they will use spaces between words.

My pen-pal still writes to me in mostly kana, with a couple kanji that I've told him I know, and he includes spaces.
Your pen-pal probably includes spaces just to make it easier for you. I'm sure if he was writing to another Nihonjin, there would be no spaces.

It says "Konnichiwa."
The harder they come, the harder they fall, one and all.
