In an autoresponder template, there is an option to set a delay on the article.
This is especially useful if there are multiple articles in a sequence.
For each article, the day delay counts from the time the subscriber initially activated the subscription.
"Test Article" sends immediately after the sign-up is complete.
"Test Article 2" sends two days after sign-up.
"Test Article 3" sends four days after sign-up.
The article delay does not count down from the previous article send time. It always depends on the time of initial sign-up.
