Autoresponders let you create and send campaigns to new subscribers automatically. You can create one or a series of welcome or promotional emails and control when the new subscriber receives them. For example, you could build a welcome email that is triggered to send to a new subscriber 1 hour after they sign up. Autoresponders will work for both new contacts that you import, adding a single subscriber, or any new contacts who sign up via your sign up form.
