I think you did the right thing by not disclosing the name of the person, although I think the company name is fair game. In part, it might have removed some of the mystery from the message if the company were named "Email Marketing Lists For Less" or something.

This is a terrible message, though. One expects that the person who sent it isn't very happy to be in sales.

Thanks for your input, David. One other reason I didn't post the company name is that I didn't want to drive business its way. But, here's the big reveal: XYZ Networks is actually Broadview Networks based in Rye Brook, NY. I agree with your closing point: the person who wrote it is not a happy salesman.
