Her website doesn't indicate what she expects (e.g. pages, synopsis) along with Query. Does anyone here know?

With a grand total of 2 query responses in the past year, whether it's bouncing emails or indifference, I suspect we're all looking at the same fate!

Had the same experience as others with -- it bounced back. Sent to, hope that went through!

@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.

Mine went through at the query address... I think! I didn't get a notification otherwise

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?

Probably got lost in shuffle of transitioning to new agency. May resubmit.
