"Thanks so much for the chance to look at [Redacted]. I really like this concept, but I’m sorry to say I wasn’t as drawn in by the story as I hoped to be. Of course this is a subjective response, but it does tell me I’m not the right agent for this piece. I’m sorry not to write with better news, but I hope you find the perfect fit soon."

@sumkat I submitted on the 12th and got a message about him not having access to e-mail that day (I think he was traveling). So basically they're out-of-office auto-reply messages. I would assume you'd only get that if your e-mail went through.
