This occurs due to multiple reasons-
  1. When you do not provide the Outgoing protocol and Outgoing server in the Configurations for Email Sender node. Click here to know more about how to specify the Configuration.
  2. When attachment-fileID parameter is not mapped correctly. Attachment-fileID parameter of Email Sender node accepts fileID and not the path of the file.
    Ensure Upload to JIFFY server function is used to upload the attachment file to the JIFFY server that returns the fileID. This fileID needs to be then mapped to attachment-fileID parameter of email sender node.
