OK, I did as instructed and tested and the initial value on failed validations seems to work now. But when I tested the form the e-mail now doesn't seem to send. Or at least I'm not receiving it. Before I'd check my e-mail and I'd get it almost instantly but it has been over 10 minutes now and my mail server seems fine. I tried opening the Universal Email 1 in the server behaviors panel and clicking Finish and then uploading the files and that doesn't seem to fix it.
Can you check on the files I sent after the change if you can get the e-mail to work or do you see a reason why the change would have broken the e-mail?
If one of my tests do get through, I will post asap.
