Handling rejection

I got a rejection letter from DAW Books today. DAW is unusual in that they will accept manuscripts directly from authors, without an agent sending them—or at least they used to; I'm not positive that's still the case, because I haven't sent them a book in at least six years. That's because I got an agent about six years ago, and while she has not yet sold any of my books, she has shopped a lot of them around, and so she is the one who has been getting the rejection letters. 


The letter is very nicely worded but it's clearly a form letter and doesn't even list the title of the book, so I don't know which book it is they finally  got around to reading and decided they could live without.
