I had the same experience as tmdefrench below.
Pitched at Indiana writing workshop. She requested full manuscript, bio and synopsis on 2/10/18.
Sent all of the above on 2/22/18.
Received auto replay to contact after nine weeks and that SHE ALWAYS RESPONDS TO REQUESTED MATERIALS.
Resent/emailed on 4/24/18.
Auto reply.

Very aggravating. Don’t make promises you have no intention of keeping.

YA Contemporary - 57k
EQ - 4/18 (rec'd auto reply - if no response within 3 weeks-5/9/18-it’s a pass)
CNR - 5/17/18

5/6/18: Another agent told me that I did not include the required pages and when looking at my sent mail, they indeed, were not there. I just looked at the email I sent Ms. Sagba and realized that the same thing happened (UGH), so I sent her another email today explaining what happened and this time, I just pasted directly from my Word document (I had been trying to paste PDF images from a scan so that the formatting would look right and the page numbers would show up).
