FWIW, I did get the auto-reply that she got it when I ent it:
Thanks for querying me!

I am still reading and responding to queries during this unusual time. We all need good books right now. However, things may take a bit longer for a while.

This is an auto-reply to let you know I’ve received your email and I’ll review your query as soon as I’m able.

I would very much like to be able to respond to every query, but unfortunately time doesn’t allow for it. If you haven’t heard back from me within eight weeks, I'm sorry to say I've decided I'm not the ideal match for your project. Thank you again for the opportunity to consider your work.

Unless I’ve requested material from you, I won’t look at attachments or click on links, so if you’ve done that, please re-send with all relevant information in the body of your email: your query letter and the first 20 pages of your project.

@lmr1999: Yes, but they have exceptions: "Generally, if an agent at Folio declines a manuscript, we felt it wasn’t a fit for any of the agents at the agency. That said, if an author feels strongly that another Folio agent should have the chance to review the author’s submission, please let the second agent know that the author has already submitted the project to other agents within Folio."

Does anyone know if Folio, Jr. is a "no from one means no from all" agency?
