ER 10/17 form letter. Sigh.

Checked my spam filter and there it was.

Curious Elvenlight111 because I sent one on 10/2 and did not receive an auto response...now wondering if I should send again.

I received an auto response to my email. In response to the people that didn’t get one, I heard that Laurel just joined the Bent Agency on 9/25, and my auto response was labeled as “No Subject”, so maybe she just recently got it set up. That’s my best guess.
