Sorry it took so long...didn't see the response to the post.
To answer your questions: The version is 1.0.1 and there is no other way I interact with it.
In the new file I created, I made the form, applied validation and then ran universal email. During the form validation application, I had the error. I then proceded to copy paste from a working one and apply universal email.
What you're getting is what I'm expecting to get. But it's not happening. I go into a newly created form and get to my alpha option. I select what I want and if I go in and change it, it's different. Also, if I apply it's different.
Thinking something got corrupted with extension, but how can that be?
