The Email AutoResponder

An email autoresponder is a tool that can be used to deliver emails automatically in response to certain emails or events in a programmed sequence and at preset time intervals. You can use an autoresponder in your website to thank a subscriber to your website immediately after subscription and send a series of newsletters to your subscribers at intervals you desire. With an email autoresponder you can prescribe the order in which emails are to be sent and the intervals in between the sendings. You program your autoresponder once and let it work for you indefinitely. It is , therefore, a useful email marketing tool to provide information immediately to your prospective customers and to make follow-ups at regular time intervals.
