Email is sent to us only if we upload the file into non require file upload field, otherwise emails are not sent

    My form has text fields and 2 file upload fields.  The file uploads are not "required". 

    If I include a file on a test submission I get an email about it.  If I don't, I get nothing.

    (Am I right in thinking that if I get email submissions, they won't show as submissions in JotForm?  My form is showing 0 submissions, even though I've made 2 today.)


    Thank you in anticipation of your help!

    We will be assisting you shortly with your issue on this thread, but I wanted to let you know that I have moved the issue about not seeing the submissions in your submissions panel to a new thread here: where I want to update you on this.

    Are you still having issues with receiving emails? You should receive email notifications once the form is submitted despite of the any field validations set, required or not. 

    When I tried it on a cloned version of your form, I am receiving emails just fine.

    All appears to be fine now thank you. (Had I done something stupid, or was it a problem I didn’t cause?)
