I know this is a dumb question but what is the difference between an eform and an infopath form?  I am thinking they are the same or maybe that one is just an emailed form?

InfoPath is certainly an eform application but it can do a lot more than that.

There are many applications which can be an "electronic form" which i would define as having controlled and validated data capture with the ability to submit or transfer the data electronically.

InfoPath can do this via SharePoint, direct to a database, via email, or just daving as an xml document.

Hope that Helps.
