    The attachment field on your form is an upload field. Meaning, it will output a URL. A URL contains symbols that will break the URL parameter like back slash and semi-colon. To prevent a URL from breaking the URL parameter, use URL encode tag inside the field variable.

    Example if your attachment field variable is {attachments}, it should become like this {URLENCODE:attachments}
