    Do you mean you get an error when you click on the links for the uploaded files on the email? Can you provide one of the links that is broken?

    I have the same problem... I am allowing PDF, DOC, DOCX and TXT.  When I attached a .DOCX, my Windows PC saved the file on my machine as a ZIP file.  Inside the ZIP file was a bunch of other folders and files.  files were XML and other types.

    On my coworkers MAC, clicking the link briefly opened his default browser (Chrome), but then it closed.

    Any advice?  We want to go live with the form Monday and will remove the upload if we cannot get it to work right by launch.

    Thanks!!!

    After some testing:  the .DOC. PDF and .TXT worked on my PC...  I am assuming it will work on a Mac as well with the right software.  Is the .DOCX filetype not supported?

    You did not have it on the list. I added it for you. Please try it now.
