I don't care how you spell it, means "thanks for your question, hope we answered it"
No: outside of Fortress America, "inquiry" does not mean what you imagine it to.
Which APPARENTLY some don't want to get answered. Shaking head and walking off muttering: and if the Brits have two different versions of inquiry (to inquire/enquire, question, seek answers) which mean the same thing then I guess us on the other side of the pond are impoverished in that regard. Bet ya, however, that INQUIRY wins since that's where all the money (what there is left) is...
Precisely the sort of American arrogance that annoys Brits to no end and will see them mercilessly punish any local betrayal.
