Hi,

I haven't yet approved that letter either.

Is the sentence above correct grammatically, and what does it mean?

It's correct. I'd add a comma after letter, but most people do not.

Without the either, it means that the person talking or writing has not approved the letter, but expects to. Possibly the letter is OK, but he hasn't reviewed it, or possibly the letter has been found deficient, and returned for changes.

The "either" indicates that there was at least one other letter he was asked about before this one, and both letters have the same "unapproved" status.
