@rhmae_me - Nor did I. Sometimes a bounce like that means it's been filtered, but her site doesn't mention any specific requirements for subject lines and mine had "Query" in it anyway.

...And a look at the headers shows that, indeed, the error was "Message blocked because it contains content identified as spam." I'm at a loss - it's the same one I've been sending out, no attachments, nothing unusual.

Her agency website lists one submission email while her Publishers Marketplace page lists another. Weird

But apparently that was right when she was leaving an agency and starting her own? Should I resend?
