Submitting a fillable form via e-mail


Level 1

I have a fillable form that has been created and want it to be submitted via e-mail as a PDF document. I have everything done, have tested it from my computer and everything seems to work fine. I sent it to someone else to have them take a look at it and we have discovered that when I open it, fill it out and submit via e-mail everything is fine, however when they tried to, the submit via e-mail did not work. We were able to fill out the form, but when the submit button was clicked, nothing happened. It was after that that we discovered that as long as you opened the form on a computer with Adobe Pro XI, you could submit via e-mail, however opening it on a computer that only has Adobe Reader did not allow it to be submitted. I need the form to have the ability to be opened, filled out and submitted via e-mail from computers that only have Adobe Reader, as most people only have this version available on their computer. I should note that the computers that we tried it on with only Adobe Reader have version 11.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

You can only submit the filled PDF with Adobe Reader if it is Reader Extended. Instructions on how to do this have been discussed countless times on this forum.
