Segmentation is a paid feature in Emails v2 and if you were using it in Email v1, only the segment filters you used are moved seamlessly to the corresponding email in v2, and by default has that filter selected in the Send to list.
For example, if you had used Subscription Renewal First Reminder email in v1 with the segment filter bi-monthly or longer, while you move to Email v2, the same filter is mapped to the corresponding email in v2. The email in v2 now has segment filter bi-monthly or longer selected by default in the Send to list.
Reminder emails is also a paid feature in Emails v2. However, if you were using it in Email v1, it is seamlessly moved to Email v2 and you can edit and make changes to the template if necessary. However, if you try and create new one, it won't be allowed.
