CharlieB88, did you resend? Reading these comments, I honestly can't remember if I got an auto response. I sent mine about a month ago and have not heard back.

Update: got a full request today (June 25) and can now see I did get an auto response when I sent the query May 7. She does ask that you include the query letter on the first page of your ms, that you add a second email to your response and that you change the subject line to reflect her request. I started to compose a response but hit a glitch with Thunderbird so I composed a second one but forgot to add her second email. I saw my mistake and rectified it but then forgot to attach the manuscript. Ended up sending three different emails before I got it right. She sent a very sweet confirmation of receipt a couple of hours later. All's well that ends well! YA Speculative, 72K

@charlie_girl yes I did in the end, I found a blog post saying if you haven't received an auto-response after 5 days, resend and let them know. Got one straightaway after that!
