As always I have browsed through and tried to find my answer and have not located exactly what I am looking for. I have a PDF form that I want to distribute. When I distribute there are 3 options, the first option showing a lock which tells me it's secure when the recipient submits information back to me; the second and third do not show the lock. I have tested them all and being the first option requires recipients to log in to adobe, I can not use that option. Does anyone know if the manual option (#2) is secure when it's submitted back? They are inputting personal/sensitive information so I am looking for a secure way for them to return the form.
I have Pro X but am saving form as PDF then editing and distributing (not using livecycle).
The option to submit by email is generally not secure since many (most?) people don't use or have access to a secure method for sending email. The option to submit to an internal server on your network is as secure as the server/network is.
I tried the 3rd server option and I couldn’t get it to send???

I don't have Pro X but...
I have been researching this for quite some time now. I too have a form which requires sensitive personal information to be entered by users who may not be any more computer literate than filling out, saving and emailing.
I tried to incorporate a button with EMAIL BACK TO... etc.
The problem is, there is only one way to secure an email this way and it is using a 'security envelope' - which I am assured is not secure. Given that an emailed form may end up on minimum of 2 isp servers there is no security AND no way to apply an automated security envelope. Tried. Hard.
My research has led me to believe that the only way to secure the information is to have the form accessed and filled out online.
Once finished, a button on the form can be loaded with Save and Send - to a secure server - and here is my current position...
I am SURE I read somewhere early in my travels something about a 'Secure Adobe Server" which receives the form, notifies the intended recipient who then collects the form from the server for a service fee.
This would resolve my form's security in that user accesses the pdf online, fills it out online and sends online.
Anyone know? Heather, do you know or have you heard of this?
