What are the steps that I need to take to switch the auto-reply emails for confirmations and managing preferences that go with our sign up form to automated emails?  The automated emails will allow me to include a message with graphics and styling of the mesage right? Or is there any way to add a logo to the auto-reply confirmation or manage your preferences emails that follow someone signing up for our list?

Hi Books Marketing,

If you're using one of our Classic Signup forms, you won't be able to add images or styling to the confirmation or manage prefs emails, but you can easily disable them in favor of an Automated email campaign:
  1. Head to the Audience page, scroll to the bottom of the page, click the "Classic Forms" tab, and click on the signup form in question.
  2. Once you've opened the signup form, click the "Confirm it" tab, and deselect the "Send confirmation?" option.
  3. Then, head to the "Manage preferences email" tab, and deselect the "Send manage preferences confirmation?" option.
  4. Click the "Save" button on the right side of the page.
Now that you've disabled the Confirmation and Manage preferences emails, you can head to the Campaigns area of your account to create the confirmation or manage prefs email just like any other email campaign. Once you've created the mailing in the editor, you can create an automated workflow to ensure that your new campaign will send anytime someone uses your signup form. You can read about using the Automation feature here
You can also disable the automatic confirmation email that sends when someone uses one of your Lightbox signup forms! You can read about that in step 7 of this Resource Center article.

Thanks so much, and I hope this helps!
