I emailed Upstart Crow about the email confirmations. They said not to worry. The auto-response is still being set up, but Ms. Cichello is getting all of the queries we've sent. Good luck to you all!

Anybody get an automated response that their query was received? The website mentions that, but I didn't get an auto response.
