    Use Of Commas

    When writing a letter which begins with the words
    "Thank you" should you follow the words thank you with a comma.
    I am having a dispute with my colleague who says not but when using microsoft office auto-text adds a comma. I am not sure if this is correct.
    I work in medicine and the majority of letters I do begin with the words

    Thank you for referring this 64 year old gentleman etc . . . . . .
