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.

She requested my full manuscript a day after querying (71k, suspense).
After 47 days she rejected it, but definitely not a form letter rejection. She commented on the things she liked about it, and pointed out two areas for improvement (that led her to say she wasn't the right agent for it.) So I definitely feel she gave it a fair reading, and I appreciate the feedback.
