Correct me if I'm wrong, but you cannot e-mail form data on a pdf
from Adobe Acrobat Reader, you must have the full version of Adobe
Acrobat or the Adobe Acrobat Approval product, or you have to submit

Please feel free to comment or e-mail me offline for futher details -
I definitely want to help out someone else who has been through

What is going on?
