    yes, I saw that. I do not understand it.

    Here are instructions:
    In this example, the form tag for the file uploading field is:
    [file your-file filetypes:pdf]
    Therefore, the corresponding mail tag to this is:

    That did not work for me and what I actually had to put in that does work is form tag: [file UploadFile] and in mail tag [UploadFile]

    I had tried the your-another-file and it did not work.

    Any help is appreciated.

    I also found the instructions confusing...

    Okay. I've made step by step instructions for how I got it to work. Take it for what you will.

    Step One

    Step Two

    Step Three

    Step Four

    Step Five

    Sample Form


    I have learned in this process that you cannot edit and add HTML in the Message Body of the form coming to your inbox. Additionally, emails with as little as 3Mb attachments can take up to 20 minutes to get to your inbox. At first I thought the emails were not sending, but then when they showed up 20 minutes later I just realized it was a server delay. I don't know whose side the delay was one (Google or Dreamhost).

    Either way, I hope this helps in some manner.
