An agent I'm interested in querying has different guidelines on her manuscriptwishlist.com profile than her agent's website.

The submission email is a general email for the whole agency, not each agent's personal email. The website states to send sample chapters, one or two, and that emails with large attachments will be deleted.

On her profile it says to email the same general email, but to also include a synopsis with the query letter, and the first 50 pages in an attached Word document.

Since these are two different guidelines with varying requirements, I'm not really sure which one to follow. Any thoughts would be helpful! Thanks everyone!

Follow the agent's guidelines, I guess, and specify which agent it is for per #MSWL

I agree that you should follow the agent’s guidelines on her website.
