I am very new to Livecycle Designer (v 8.0) so go easy on me. My objective is to provide a PDF form to my customers they fill it out, click a button and it gets emailed back to me.
I have successfully created the form and all works well on my test system except that when the submit button is clicked; the local mail client is opened prompting the user to click the send button to mail the form via their mail client.
This seems to be redundant (the button on the form is a mail to button and then they have to click the send button from their mail client) and it occurred to me that quite a few folks out there do not have a mail client installed on their systems and the mailto: function will fail (they use web based email clients).
My question is this: How do I setup the form so that the customer clicks a button and the form simply gets sent to my mailbox, avoiding any local mail clients?
The bottom line is ....you cannot. If that was possible I could build a denial of service attack into every form that you create. By forcing the user to hit the send button you also stop true applications like the one you are trying to build.
