Just a suggestion to tack on to the end here:  don't always rely on email.  If it matters, pick up the phone and call.  If nothing else, you get a much quicker response and demonstrate your seriousness and professionalism.  Agents and editors get at least a hundred emails a day.  And they are not always delivered.

Good luck!

Thanks for the advice. So far all three requests for material have stemmed from email queries. I tend to be impatient, so I get the rejections faster this way! I'm now trying to find agents that ask for more of a snail mail package. I think if they are willing to read at least the synopsis and first chapter I may have a better chance of getting farther along with all this.
