I have designed a form using acrobat v 8.1.2 - the form was created from excel and has three buttons PRINT, RESET & E-mail all three work in the preview mode within acrobat - but when I save the file and then open in acrobat reader the E-mail button tells me that the 'operation not permitted' - I have checked everything I can think of... any help would be appreciated.

This sounds like a "rights" issue. To email from Reader, the PDF form need the "Extendendde Forms Rights for Reader" enabled or applied.
