Summary17237: Zip attachments on email templates are not attached to the email
DescriptionWhen the email is sent it doesn't contain the attachment.

> The zip file is attached on the template, before sending? Or that fails as well?
File is attached, template seems to be fine. So, it fails in the sending phase.

Reported while testing 17220
Steps To ReproduceOK. I deleted & re-created the database, deleted LS files, unzipped newest version and installed with default values. In first login I created a survey, clicked default question group & question, added participants table, activated, added user with email "jm58660@localhost.localdomain" (jm58660 is my account), added a zip-file to invitation email template, went to participants list, and clicked "sent email invitation" -icon.

And got a mail without attachment.

So I think I did everything as directly as I could, not changed anything from defaults.
TagsNo tags attached.

The issue was with LimeMailer:
It tried to "json_decode" the attributes, which are actually serialized.
Even then, it was trying to use the "path" property of the attachment, which doesn't exist (it's "url").
Finally, although this is not related to the issue, if the attachment had an invalid path it tried to throw a "CErrorEvent".
