File upload fields let your visitors send you files. A common use is to allow job applicants to upload a CV. Uploaded files are scanned for viruses on our server. Please note however that we cannot guarantee files are free of viruses, and you should scan all files you receive with your own virus scanner.

The upload field window lets you change the following settings:

The label for the field.
Whether the visitor has to upload a file.
Maximum file size
The maximum size of file that the visitor may upload. This limit can be used to prevent very large e-mails being sent to you. Note that setting this limit too low can prevent visitors from sending you large files legitimately — for example, photographs from digital cameras.

Click OK to apply the changes to the file upload field. Click Cancel to return to the page without changing the file upload field.
