Thank you for contacting ESA.
If you have sent us a query about your manuscript, please sit tight while we read your work. Because of the volume of e-mail we receive, we are unfortunately only able to respond to queries when we're interested in reading more.
If you have an administrative question regarding the agency -- foreign rights, who we represent, etc -- please contact
Many thanks and best wishes.

The ESA website says nothing about her being closed to queries. Where is that coming from?
