Email pdf form from Remote Desktop server when you're Outlook isn't setup

I have fillable pdf forms that I created for work.  In the form, I have a button users can click to email the form.  All of this works great as long as the Remote Desktop Server you are logged in on has your profile and email set up on it.  In my company, we have many servers that users are logged in on to do there every day work, but when they need a form they remotely connect to a different server to where all of our documents are stored.  Most users do not have email set up on this server.  I.T. doesn't want to set everyone up on this 'document' server to be able to send emails.  Are there any other options ?

...ask the user for their e-mail address on the .PDF form?

If IT is concerned about storage you could just use Outlook in online mode.  OWA or Send-MailMessage with PowerShell would also work.

Wouldn't the users need to know how to setup OWA, Jason?  I have hundreds of users, many of which have limited computer experience.  So I need this to be idiot proof.

All they need is their email address and password.  You should be able to make OWA either the homepage or shortcut through a logon script or GPO.
