Submit the filled in data (not pdf) to your server and store the data or use the data to recreate the pdf with the data received.

Thanks , but I want the people to see the same PDF form, either print it, fill it and then print it, or fill it and email it.
They can still save/print etc, the only difference is they don't need to save it first and then attach to an email.
Depending on the version you are using you could add a button, click the button and change the type to Submit and set Send PDF.
OK, so the question is how to save the data from the PDF to the server
What do you want to do with the data - save it to a PDF or store in a DB or ...?
I have the pdf form, if I save it on DB on server, need a tool to retrieve it.
I just want people to see my PDF, fill it and the information gets email to me, that is it.

It was not practical , because it requires a software.
I don't understand. You have Acrobat Pro to create the fillable form. Your users only need Adobe Reader to complete it and all the functionality for emailing is contained in the PDF.

What software is required?
