the save icon you see when you run Acrobat (Reader) under a web
browser does not really save the document, but it makes sure that it
gets downloaded from the server in its integrity. This is not a
saving action because if you do that with a form, you will get the
empty form, but nothing you filled in.
In other words, this button is essentially the same as right-clicking
on the link to the PDF document.
In addition to Jenny's remarks, keep in mind that you can use PDF
documents in a server environment, but you can not use applications.
Applications must be installed locally (kind of a grey zone is
Distiller where the watched folder is shared; in this case, there
must be a licence for Distiller for every user sending PS files to
BTW, the forum/mailing list does automatically discard attached files
(fortunately so, keep in mind that there are not that many people
around having a fast internet connection, and that many of us have to
pay for every minute connected to the internet).
Hope, this can help.
