Unfortunately, we disabled sending email messages to users due to SPAM. Instead, you will be able download the filled PDF that would normally go out in the email message. The download feature is also part of the PDF Forms Filler for CF7 plugin.
No special software is necessary on your web server. The PDF Forms Filler for CF7 plugin uses WordPress core functions and the Pdf.Ninja web API to fill PDF forms (subscription is necessary for professional usage). However, if you need all filling to be done directly on your web server, the Enterprise Extension plugin is also available.
