Multiple Attachment UploadAsked by mzelicskovics on August 31, 2011 at 04:44 PM
Hi, here is the form I am using: http://www.shopfashionablylate.com/submit-an-item
Is there any way to set it so that the attachments are sent to my email instead of your server or dropbox?
We are getting multiple submissions a day, thanks!

Before anything else, I'd like to remind you that the form collapses in your embedded form is not working due to script conflicts in our page. Please use iFrame codes instead to embed your form.
Moving on to your question, the answer is no, there is no way to send uploaded files as e-mail attachments. Below is the reason I have stated in a related thread:
While this could prove to be very useful and handy to our users, it will do the opposite to our servers. I can see this having the potential of being a bandwidth hog. Imagine how much bandwidth a single form submission with a 100MB upload will eat up if it will be sent to, say, 5 email addresses.
I am of the opinion that sending out a download link for the file serves the same purpose as sending the file itself. It is even better in the sense that the form owner will have the option to download only those files that he/she wants to, i.e., SPAM can be avoided.
Hope this answers your question.
Thank you Neil.
Could you check it for me and confirm that my form is now working correctly?
I have tested your form and it's working great, I have also made a sample submission and was redirected to your custom thank you page without problem. Everything works perfect in Firefox and Chrome.
If you have any other concern, just feel free to let us know. Thank you for using JotForm!
P.S. Nice Site :)
We have a great news for you. It is now possible to send the file uploads as email attachments with the email notifications. Please give it a try and let us know if you have any feedback.
