Use both: inquiry here, enquiry there. Love everyone.
And, BeeDeeDubbleU, if you see a difference, use, as others have suggested, "Thanks for your interest."
I think part of the misunderstanding here is that people outside of the UK cannot understand that "inquiry" to us means a formal, organised investigation normally held by a group of people.
I think part of the misunderstanding here is that people outside of the UK cannot understand that "inquiry" to us means a formal, organised investigation normally held by a group of people. For example yesterday there were calls in parliament for a public inquiry into the riots in English cities. If someone in the UK had written "calls for a public enquiry" it would look wrong, it would be seen as wrong and it is wrong. ;)
means the same thing... Answer to the INQUIRY/ENQUIRY is: Pick your poison (US/UK) and go from there... both are ENGLISH.
Hm, come to think of it, how do you spell the verb?
"Thank you for your enquiry"
"Thank you for your inquiry"
I don't care how you spell it, means "thanks for your question, hope we answered it"
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...
