I've tried a few WME agents now, I'm getting the same error message for all of them.

I've been trying to query this agent for a few months, but keep getting this error message back: 554 Email rejected due to security policies

I'm sending from a gmail account, and haven't had this problem with any other emails. Anyone else having this problem?

I'm SO thrilled to be working with Sabrina. She's hungry and eager to prove herself with a phenomenal agency behind her! I can't wait to dive into revisions and get this book to be the very badass story I know it can be!!

Received a nice note saying that Claudia is going on maternity leave and will be back in April. Welcome to resubmit then.
