I agree with John.  After taking a closer look at the message
headers I am convinced that there is no "Silvia Brown" and that
its quite likely that GTE.NET's mailservice was exploited to
forward this message so that the true sender could remain
anonymous.  I do intend to find out who the telephone service
provider is and complain to them.  (T'would be a delicous irony
if it turns out to be GTE :)
