"Due to the high number of queries I receive every day, I am unfortunately unable to respond to each. If I am interested in reading more of your work, I will send you a request for material. If you do not receive a request from me within 4 weeks, it means I don't believe I'm the right agent for your project, and no further response will be sent."

I did not receive an auto-reply to my query.
I sent it again about two weeks later, noting that I did not receive the auto-reply.
I did not get an auto-reply with that email either.
