You can add as many sections as you'd like, they will be separated by a dividing line to keep you newsletter organized.  Once your content has been added for the given section, hit save to exit to the main newsletter section

    Save and Send Now - This will send out the email blast to the intended recipients immediately.  Please note: Depending on the size of the subscriber list, it may take a few minutes to fully process and send out the email. 
    Save and Schedule for a Future Date - This allows you to schedule your email newsletter for a later date using a calendar.  You must also choose the time in which your newsletter is sent out.  Please note: Time is based on EST.
