    How can I send an online pdf by email (complete form)


      Hi experts,

      prior to acrobat X and windows7 it was possible to add a submit button enable additional rights for adobe reader and the form would be attached to an email and sent to the recipient.

      This doesn't seem to work in windows7 environments any more.


      I have followed all tutorials and tips but nothing seem to work

      I have tried to use javascript instead according to the following maildoc tutorial

      http://livedocs.adobe.com/acrobat_sdk/9.1/Acrobat9_1_HTMLHelp/wwhelp/wwhimpl/common/html/w whelp.htm?context=Acrobat9_HTMLHelp&file=JS_API_AcroJS.88.505.html


      Even if I use the simple example in the tutorial




              bUI: false,

               cTo: "myemail@gmail.com",

               cSubject: "The Latest News",

               cMsg: "A.P., attached is my latest news story in PDF."




      it won't work.


      I have tried thunderbird and live email as default clients, the result is the same:

      In chrome => an empty email opens

      in firefox => the attachment is included but no email recipient or subject line

      in internet explorer => same, attachment is included but no emeil recipient or subject line


      In the preferences I have enabled menu items Javascript execution privileges just in case this was an issue but to no avail.


      Isn't sending a complete form by email an option anymore?

      I need this feature.

      Thanks in advance for any helpl.
