Need help installing in wall light timer switch

I bought a Honeywell programmable wall switch and it has three wires - blue, black and white. The problem is that the previous light switch has three black wires and one copper ground wire. I don't know how to connect the programmable switch with those 3 black wires and the copper wire.

Hello and welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your electrical question. 1) So was the previous wall switch a 3-way switch that had 2 brass screws and 1 black screw? 2) How many locations could the lighting fixture be controlled from? 1, 2 or more wall switch locations? 3) Does the wall switch box contain a group of white neutral wires that are spliced together? 4) What is the model number of the Honeywell switch?
