I queried Mr. Rutman in April via the website form and did not receive an email confirmation (others have likewise said they did not receive one in the comments threads for other SLL agents on here.) After I got an offer of rep, I emailed the general agency email notifying them. Mr. Rutman's assistant wrote to me promptly and asked me to resend my query as he couldn't find it in Mr. Rutman's inbox. I wonder if this betokens an issue with the online submission form or if it's just a fluke.
