    Upon checking your Email templates, you should see the attachment on you email. As it is properly configured on your settings.


    What I would suggest is that you send an actual submission with attachement to it as I can see that the upload field is NOT a required field on your form and you might be receiving blank attachment because there is no uploaded files at all.


    As you can see it is not a require field.


    Upon cloning your form and testing it on my end, I was able to upload and receive the attachment via email.

    Please let us know if problem persists so that we could further investigate.

    Thank you for using JotForm.
