I created a sales and when I go to Sales>Invoices I can see the invoice listed as INV-2017-001.
When I click on "Send via Email" I get the following message:

Warning: Invoice file was not created! Please, check file/folder permissions of "upload" folder.

I checked the folder and the permissions were 755.
I tried changing it to 777 and tested it again but the same message comes up still.

So what needs to be done to get the email invoice working?

I also noticed when the order is made as a guest registering for the first time, they don't receive the email or the invoice.
It might be something I have set incorrect. I think if it sets the order status to pending it didn't send it. Something I will play with and see.

Also a secondary observation when creating the pdf of the invoice, it always makes it 2 pages fro some reason. first page is the invoice and the second is blank.

    Just a follow up, I looked in the "uploads" folder and the pdf is created but it's named ".pdf". Nothing in front of the period.
    I tried to open it and look at the contents and the page is blank. I deleted the file and clicked on "Send via Email" again and it created the file again and still appears blank and named ".pdf". Seems like something is broken.

    Also found out that when you change the order status, and select notify customer, they receive 2 emails instead of 1. But at least they get something.

    Sorry I didn't see this post about the problem already, https://arastta.org/forum/pdf-and-email-invoice-problem-again
    If possible, you might want to merge both topics.
