How can I submit PDF forms to an email inbox?

I have a form that was created in Acrobat 9. My goal is to have vistors download the PDF from my website, fill in the information and to be able to submit the form.  Ideally, I would like to retrieve the completed PDF (just not the xml info) in my email inbox.  I have the email button embedded in the form using LiveCycle CS4 but all that brings up is Outlook or web mail on the visiting pc and attaches the PDF in an email.  Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Jon

Email button relies on the email client to send emails. You cannot submit PDF forms to an inbox, but you can submit it to a web page and that page can download and save the PDF. You can also FTP it, but you need to figure out how that works. Submitting to a web page is simple, but you need to script some code in asp/php/aspx/java

Normally when Adobe Reader users submit PDF forms, it sends the data. can merge the PDF and the data back together on the server, and send the whole PDF to any e-mail address the developer supplies, or you can pass a parameter in either a PDF form field or a querystring. creates scripts for the developer to upload onto the 1.1, 2.0, 3.0, 3.5, or 4.0 web servers. works on local and remote web servers. sends e-mail without 3rd party client e-mail software. uses and iTextSharp technologies.
