I am attempting to create a fillable form (PDF) which includes a submit button, which on clicking attaches itself to an e-mail (Outlook 2013), populates the recipients, subject and body text. I have created the document (using a submit form button) and it works perfectly apart from one very large problem... when sent within our company the e-mail is quarantined!
Having spoken to messaging team it appears that this is due to a winmail.dat file.
I am hoping someone can provide some assistance, is the winmail.bat file created by InDesign, or by Acrobat, and is there a way to bypass this/other method to avoid the problem?
Any suggestions welcome.
I don't think this file is created by Indesign, Acrobat or any other Adobe software.
I found this http://support.microsoft.com/kb/278061 on searching.
As it state "Outlook uses it when sending a Rich Text-formatted message. During transport, the content of the message may be changed, preventing the receiving client from being able to read the formatting instructions. In other cases, the receiving client does not use or recognize the winmail.dat file."
I would suggest you follow the suggestion in the link above and then check, if it helps.
