sometimes, instead of data from the form, we only get the variable name [email_content] in the attachment. why can this happen? Because when I check it all is ok

Hi alkmpl,
Do you have server-side validation enabled? The most likely explanation for these emails is that the form was submitted with no data???

I have validation enabled.
It is impossible to submit the form without data because some of the fields are "required" and they always have to be.
It only happens sometimes. I had this constantly after moving the site from the subdomain (for developer) to the target domain but it was a matter of the TMP folder for Chronoforms but I have fix that and all my tests are working. And the user is sometimes sent wrong

Hi alkmpl,
That says that you have bought a ChronoForms subscription.
The validation that I am talking about is the form functions that check that the data being submitted is valid.

everything the user can send is data from the dropdown lists so I don't need to validate anything. and the problem repeats periodically.
I don't even know where to look for the cause of the error because it usually works

Hi alkmpi,
We have seen that bots scanning your website can 'check' urls they find and effectively submit blank forms. Again, serverside validation should allow you to block these - in your case check for a required drop-down where nothing is selected.

PS Bots here can be search engines like Google or local security checks that read the page HTML, look for links and check them out.

This is a huge BUG!
We have the same Problem. Serverside validation does not work. We have a lot "required" fields and validation enabled. Still the same issue!
