In Acrobat X, I want to add a button to a form that will automatically open the user's default email program and attach the form to a new email with a specific email address in the To field.

I currently don't have that full version but should be similar to this:  
1 Add a button to PDF file.
Click once on the ""Tools" menu and once on the "Forms" option to generate a list of available features. Select the "Button Tool" option from the list. The cursor will change to a cross-hair symbol. Click once in the area of the PDF that you want to place the button and hold down the mouse button. Drag to the desired button size and release the mouse button to launch the "Properties" box.

2 Edit the button properties to enable the file to be emailed to a designated address.
Select the "Action" tab. Use the "Action" menu to select the "Submit a form" option and click once on the "Add" button. A separate window will generate. Type "mailto:" followed by the email address to which you want the PDF file sent, for example "mailto:jamesjones@email.com." Click once on the "OK" button and once on the "Close" button. The button you inserted is now set up to allow the PDF file to be sent to the designated address.
