@TheSharkLady Thanks! That would make sense.

@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.

Did anyone submit around June 19th and get an automatic response that read "Hello and thanks for your message. Our offices are closed today in observance of Juneteenth and will reopen tomorrow, June 21st" ?
I don't know if it means my query went through or not.
