55 days in and looking at the stats for the last 2 years here:
Total fantasy submissions - 287
Total fantasy submissions that resulted in a rejection - 74
Total fantasy submissions that are marked CNR - 156
Total fantasy submissions that resulted in a full/partial request - 4 (3 ended in rejection and 1 ended in CNR)
Total fantasy submissions that have gone unanswered - 53
Total fantasy submissions that resulted in an offer - 0

So... zero offers in fantasy over the last 2 years, the vast majority marked CNR or unanswered and the rest are rejections.
Frankly, I see no reason to keep looking at this query in my list, so I'm going to move my "unanswered" over to "CNR" and be done with it.

Email query: 5/31
Not-quite-auto-response: 6/3

As others have said, her message to confirm receipt is not automated, so I’m not sure why some receive it and others don’t. Fingers crossed, I guess?

Queried today (May 24th) But she is on annual leave until May 28th. She said she will be checking her mail intermittently but I can assume my query is going to get lost now.

Unsure what to do.

28/05 - I received an email from Lucy letting me know she had seen my query and will get to it soon. So good to know she got it!!
