I'm sure this has been answered a thousand times, so forgive me. My PDF form works great on my site, but my "submit" button opens a file-save dialog box instead of sending the form data to my email box. I have configured the button with a "mail to:..." URL, and I've followed the Acrobat Pro 9 instructions concerning forms distribution, but I get the same results every time. The solution must be simple, because this is such a common need. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
It's hard to say without seeing the form. What exactly are you prompted to save? The URL should be something like:
Note there are no spaces and "mailto" is all lower case.
Hi George. It's a simple form. A list of 20 questions, each followed by a textbox to capture an answer. The file-save dialog asks where to save the file that looks like this:
Incidentally, I've used the mailto:email@example.com. Also, I'm sending to a web mail address if that makes a difference.

A very simple form. A list of about 20 questions, each followed by a text box to capture an answer. The file-save dialog asks where to save a document that has the following nomenclature:
Again, the preferred action is to send the form or for data directly to a designated email box. Incidentally, I did use the "mail to:firstname.lastname@example.org" format. I am sending to a web mail box if that makes a difference. Thanks.
