I have 3 separate emails I want to send to the same group of people (from same smart list). Each email has a different send schedule though - also, if a person replies to one of the first 2 emails, I would want to remove them from the list so that they would not receive successive emails.
What is the best way to set this up since there are (1) 3 different emails (simple content with CTA to reply to email), (2) have different send schedules; and (3) will mostly be sent to the same group of people?
Would cloning the Email Send program 3 times be best and just changing the email attached and editing the list and send date or would another Program work best?
Thanks in advance for any advice!

How does your Marketo know a person has replied?
But let's assume it knows. You can set up Smart Campaign like these:
1. Response Tracking: Trigger: Person responds --> Set Program Status to "Responded"
2. Email Schedule:
That would be a scenario for one Smart List at one particular point in time. If your Smart List result is supposed to change (as you said "mostly the same people", you should create three Smart Campaigns to send the emails. But the basic principle stays the same: Have they responded? If yes, skip the next send step.
If this is an ongoing nurture, you might as well think about running an Engagement Program. Have Email 1, 2 and 3 in one stream and create a transition rule Smart Campaign that moves people who respond out of the stream.
But back to the first question: If your CTA is really "reply to email", Marketo has no means of tracking that. You'll need third-party software for that.
If all above are applied in this scenario, would you still recommend using just a Smart List? No Program?
Got you. Still, I think changing the program status to "Responded" or "Replied" is the way to go. It also gives you good reporting on your program.
And then use that program status to exclude people from further sends.
