[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: I am not so sure the doctor was spamming.
Based on that opening phrase "thank you; you will be contacted by one
of our consultants within 45 minutes ..." it looks to me more like an
autoreply or auto-ack thing. It would appear someone either clicked on
a 'contact me' button on an ad, or maybe had send email to some
address given for the doctor and (as assurance he got the message) an
auto ack was sent out. I know the people who write here to the Digest
(even if it is spam that did not fall into the Spam Assassin trap)
also get an autoack based on my assuming they were a real, serious
person. Did you receieve any followup email or phone calls from the

I had an instance one day where I apparently sent an auto ack to
someone who had 'written' me (well actually they had not written
me they had spammed me [well actually 'they' had not spammed me, some-
one else unknown to them had done it in their name]) and that person
decided I needed to have my backporch remodeled as a result, and
they wrote back to me saying it was spam and they were go turn me
in to the authorities. I wrote them back in person that time (although
they had gotten a second auto-ack as a result of their actual letter)
and after enumerating what I feel are the better points in my life,
I said it did me good to get abused now and then, and thanked the
person graciously for taking the time to write me. PAT]
