The form does not contain an email submit button, until now I have just . However I will try to add an email submit button to the form to see if it makes a difference.
Yes I have (successfully i guess) set up an email endpoint that kicks off the process. However it seems only to work if I set the process creator to SuperAdmin (I hvae tried setting it to another user with init_permit without luck.
As it is now I have only tried to edit a PDF form in Acrobat Professional and saving the file with data. This file is then attached to an email and sent to the mailbox listened to by the endpoint.
I'll report my experment with the email submit button back to you when I have tested it fully.
If I understand properly, you are sending an email with a PDF attached to it to a process that has an email endpoint. Let me know if that's not the case.
If that's the case then, create an IN variable (in the process that has the email endpoint) of type "document". Then in your email endpoint configuration under the Input Parameter Mappings section, set that variable to *.*. This will put any attachment in the variable of type document.
Now, once you're in the process, you can use the Form Data Integration service (under Common) to export the data form the PDF.
OK, I have made the form submit xdp instead of PDF. This still does not give me any data in the form fields. I am not sure how I am supposed to parse the xml when I receive it in the email. Can you help me here?
BTW, when invoking my process i get the following warnings from the server:

I don't know if this is a problem or I have to look elsewhere for the cause of this problem.
