I wouldn't worry about it, damico. She probably just forgot to change the outgoing message.

Form, but a really nice one:

Thank you so much for sending me [title]; I’m honored you chose to query me. After reviewing your materials I don’t feel that it’s the right fit for my list at this time, so unfortunately, I'll have to pass.
I know querying is a difficult process and applaud you for following your dream. I strongly encourage you to continue your pursuit of publication, and in finding your perfect agent.
Thank you for considering me, and I wish you great success with your writing career.

An agent at this agency dropped ten authors on one day, and the agency as a whole acted extremely unprofessional. If you want to query anyone at this agency, please check out this thread.

Queried on 12/10/21—as of 1/15/22, still no response, but her Twitter did claim that she just closed to queries to catch up, so maybe I'll hear something soon.
