Okay, here's a new twist to this issue... I hope someone can help me out.
In Designer 8.0, I want a button that will e-mail the filled-in PDF form. BUT when the user clicks the button, they need to get a pop-up that lets them choose between their local e-mail client or by Web-based mail (e.g., Hotmail).
OK, I have followed the instrcutions given here, and was still having no success. I re-opened the document in Acrobat 8 Professional to double-check the rights settings, and the debugger popped up with this message - has anyone else seen this?
RaiseError: Acrobat is unable to connect to your email program.

By following James's instruction using Chris's script, my form work perfectly, thank you. I now have the need to capture the text string (whatever users type in TextField4) and place it in the body of the Email. Replace "Please find attached the completed form." with value/text in TextField4.
Thank you James and Glenn for your help.
I tried to do what you both said.
I renamed the TextField4 to SubmitbyEmail then changed the email address. When I try to save it, it says failed and gives me a warning.. What am I doing wrong?
I'm new to Acrobat Professional. I'm using Acrobat 8 Professional Trial version and able to configure it to submit a PDF form via email. However, when I opened the submitted form with Adobe Reader 7. The filled-in data were gone. Only the radio button selection was reserved. How do I fix this?
Nicole...I've had a similar problem with users who submit the form via 7.0, the form seems to not retain the data. I just have them update to Reader 8.0.
David....I'm unsure how to change the file name when emailing the form. I think the route to take is to figure out how to programmatically save the file with the preferred file name first and then email the form.
I have created a form in Livecycle Designer via Acrobat Pro 8. I have installed 3 email buttons inside the form for the document to be forwarded and reviewed/approved by various people. I need to have the whole form, as a PDF, emailed as an attachment. I don't want to XML data alone to be emailed.
I have seen a form do this. A gentleman, who i believe works for Adobe, sent me a sample form with the email button that, when clicked, attached the PDF file to the outgoing email, so i know it can be done.
I just realized the problem is not only with Adobe Reader 7.
The data submitted to my form still gets reset even I inserted data to the form using Adobe Pro 8 and saved it. Do you have any suggestion how to resolve this problem?
Thanks in advance!
I am also having a problem saving the data in PDF forms.
I created a form using LiveCycle Designer. If I open the published/distributed form on my computer I am able to save the form and the data. My husband also has no problem on his computer (he also has Adobe 8 professional). However, when others without Adobe 8 professional open the form they receive a message that the data in this form cannot be saved and they must print the completed form (they have Adobe Reader 7.0).
I have tried using the Publish to Repository and the Distribute Form (save and send later) options. Neither solve my problem.
I have closed it and opened it in Acrobat 8 Professional, Clicked on ADVANCED, and then ENABLE USAGE RIGHTS. BUT . . . I get the message: "This document could not be reader enabled"
My goal is to create a form that can be saved by the user and uploaded to a facilitator in an online course once completed.
I tried this procedure to return the form to two email addresses, but it still does not work. It will accept two addresses if I enter them as firstname.lastname@example.org,email@example.com (separated by only a comma or semi-colon), but it only composes the email to the second email address. Any help is appreciated.
