khroochang, make sure you're not using a lot of red flag words in your query and that you are sending from a reputable email service. Those are the usual reasons for a query being mistaken for spam. Too many links can also cause problems. You're not using any profanity in the query are you? Hopefully your book isn't about a door-to-door viagra salesman, because if that's the case, you're doomed.

Thank you for contacting me, but I don't think I'd be the right agent for this.

I'm sure another agent is likely to feel differently and will know exactly where to send your work.

I wish you the best in placing the manuscript elsewhere.
