Attach any files

Attach arbitrary files to mail

For a better understanding, we recommend reading the documentation completely and using the Section Introduction to start.
Relationships explained in earlier sections of the documentation are not repeated here.

The plugin allows you to easily create as many file attachments as you want.

For each attachment you can specify individually whether it should be attached to:

  • the user mails,
  • the result mails or
  • to both mails.

The files that you want to attach to the mails must be on the server. Please upload them first via FTP or using the Joomla Media Manager.

File attachments

Click the “New Attachment” button to create an attachment. A new entry is added to the Attachments list. For the “Attachment” option, enter the path and the file name of the attachment file.

Note: The path starts from the root directory of your Joomla installation.

For example, if you want to attach the image.jpg file that is in the images/my_images directory on your server, you must use this relative Enter path:


Then use the two checkboxes to specify which of the two emails the attachment should be added to.

You can create as many mail attachments as you like and change and remove entries that have already been made. To remove, click the “Delete” link.

Note: Please do not forget to save the form after you have entered your information.
