I emailed a professor asking about a graduate student position. Immediately, I received an empty email titled auto-reply. What does that mean? Can it be an indication that I won't be able to reach her via this email address?

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

It means something went wrong. It could be "an indication that I won't be able to reach her via this email address" or it could be something else. You should check the department webpage to see if it is the correct address. If so, wait a week or so and try again.
