Please allow notification emails with uploaded-file attachments!

    My ultimate goal is to use the form to create an email with all the proper stuff in the subject line to direct file submissions into my Evernote account. Evernote uses the contents of the subject line to direct the email into the proper notebook with the proper tags, and Jotform allows me all the freedom I need to make that happen. But file-uploads in notification emails don't become attachments, but rather hyperlinks to to external downloads. That doesn't actually import the file into my Evernote account, which is the whole purpose.

    Creates a form that attaches the file upload, but it doesn't give me the necessary control over the subject-line that JotForm does.

    Thank you for taking interest in our product. Unfortunately though, we cannot grant your request. There is a reason why JotForm sends only a download link for uploaded files. It is to prevent abusive users form hogging up our server's bandwidth and resources.

    As you may know, JotForm allows uploading of files with file size of up to 1GB. Also, our email alert system allows for a virtually unlimited number of form recipients. If we attach uploaded files to email alerts, imagine how much bandwidth it would take to send large file/s to a lot of people.

    Could you add an option for attached upload with a size limit? This would be an extremely useful service as so many 3rd party email sync tools will move attachments automatically.
