Review the user comments for more information, and always follow exactly what it says on the publisher's website.

I got a form letter rejection nearly 4 months after submitting:

Thank you for submitting your proposal to Shambhala, and for your patience as we have considered it. We have determined that your book would not fit our publishing program in a way that would enable us to publish it successfully. We are sorry that the volume of submissions we receive makes it impossible for us to offer you the details of this decision or to provide other advice. We are, however, grateful for having had the chance to review your work, and we wish you the best in finding the right way to publish it.

The web-site and the e-mail confirming they'd received my book proposal both said they'd respond within 2 months; I never heard back from them at all!

Edit: eventually heard back after 3 months. Better late than never.
