    Unfortunately, attaching files to notification or autoresponder emails sent out by JotFom's server is not allowed. You can instead upload this file to your server then insert a link to it in the form's autoresponder email.

    The person will receive this e-mail in their inbox after submitting the form. Then, they will have to click the link to download file.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thanks,

    Sidharth

    As your email will just have the links to files residing on your own server, I believe you can have link to any type of file extensions. 

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thanks,
