Query rejected after 2 days. At least she's quick and polite!

Mildlymary,
QueryManager won't stop you from querying multiple agents at the same agency. That would be bad, since some agencies have no problem with it. Or maybe you've done some major edits and it deserves another look. QM will inform the agent that you've queried another agent at the same agency (if the agent's have enabled that feature, not all do.) Then, it is up to the agents to decide how to proceed from there.

query rejected after 4 days - memoir

I got auto kicked out because I accidentally submitted to more than one agent at Laura Dail and querymanager picks up on that and apparently either tells the agent or auto rejects the query. Which I think is great, but why can't they warn me that I am double submitting? It's easy to make that mistake when writers are trying to "query widely" which a majority of agents suggest in the form rejection letters. Any agency with Query Manager reading this, see if that feature can be put into the software. It would be sooooo helpful to writers. I never want to double submit, but it's a lot of bookkeeping to keep track of it all.
