1. Hi Willis, I have a question for you.
  2. Hi Willis, I have a question with you.

What is the difference?

    The first one is perfectly straightforward - I have a question I want to ask Willis. But I am struggling to understand what the second one means. Perhaps I left a written question with him/her two weeks ago, and I still haven't had a reply.

Simply put, the second one is ambiguous, incomplete or incorrect. The first one is by far the only acceptable of the two.
