I submitted via email and did not receive any automated email receipt -- a few business days later I resubmitted with a note explaining from a separate email account on a web browser and still no auto email receipt. I know others have had this issue as well-- did anyone ever "figure out" what happened or find any way to confirm if your submission went through?
