Reply counts each day of step delay as 24 hours. Step delay count begins after the last email sent in the previous step. If your step delay is 3 days, Reply will begin sending emails in 72 hours after the last email of the previous step, if it coincides with your campaign schedule.
Note: each step delay is based on the previous step, not on the first step. Weekends are included in the day count.
