I some circumstances, when writing a custom letter class, I've found  
\vspace*{\fill} at the top of a page doesn't always work, and I tend  
to use plain TeX's \null or \leavevmode instead, followed by \vfill.  
For example:


so that all space for heading, and all reserved space for the first  
line on the page, is discarded before entering the infinitely  
stretchable glue then the text to be vertically centered.
