Do you still experience the problem? I am not able to reproduce the problem.
If you are still having problem, please send the link to your form to firstname.lastname@example.org
What kind of error message do you get when the link did not work? What email client are you using?
Thank you for the additional information,
When you distribute your form, did you select "Copy Link" and then pasted in the email or did you select "Email Link" and your email client automatically launched with the form url in the body of the email?
You may want to check (if you are using MS Outlook/Exchange) the email format you have selected: HTML, Plain Text, Rich Text. Please check with your IT about this setting.
Also, if you were to copy another link, for example, http://www.adobe.com in your email, would it still highlight as a link or plain text?
The link was ‘copy link’ and then paste in an email. The same problem occurred copying and pasting another link, so it looks like it is an Outlook problem, not Adobe. I solved the survey problem by going the ‘create PDF’ route, distributed the survey fine and am very pleased with the result!
Thank you again for your very prompt help!
