Topic: Form Submission, 1 Attachments
Conf: (P-PDF) Acrobat 6.0, Msg: 98981
From: Mindleach

I have heard many conflicting stories regarding this topic. I have created some pdf forms using Acrobat 6.0 professional for a client who is trying to collect some basic data. After adding a submit button with a mailto: function, I can email the completed form to any email of my choice. However, using the Adobe Reader 6.0, there is an error message saying "This Operation Is Not Permitted".

The folks at Adobe claim there are free scripts available to correct this problem and sent me here. So far I have sifted through pages of PHP, CGI and JavaScript looking for a fix, but have none. I have also tried using the FormMail CGI at my web host, but that chokes too and they cannot tell me why.

Does anyone have the correct answer to this problem? Adobe says it is a CGI Script and it can be obtained for free.

Two Passwords Are Better Than One: The Low-Down On PDF Security

For example, those document restrictions that PDF files sometimes have -- no Printing, Content Copying, Page Extraction, etc -- are essentially useless unless the PDF also has a User Password.
