Creating a PDF that can be filled-in and saved

I've created a PDF document and added text fields to it with Nuance PDF Converter Professional. However, when I open it in Adobe PDF Reader it allows me to fill-in and check off the fields as indicated but tells me "you will not be able to save this form, please print off a copy for your records". This is useless for me as I need to email these forms and save them for future reference. Any suggestions of how to create an editable and savable PDF form?

I suspect the FREE Nuance reader will allow saving but this is hardly an option if all your users have Adobe Reader installed. However you can download a fully functional trial of Adobe X from the Adobe website:

Maybe a simpler way would to create a word document with updateable fields and then protect the document.
