    We are receiving a 404 error message when we try to download an attached file from our submission received email.

    Please advise how I can correct this problem.

    Here is a link to our form:


    Thank you for your time.

    Please check and let us know if the issue still persists.

    Thank you in advance!

    Here's a quick guide for that:
