Hi Sharon Pelletier,

When you select the Distribute command and choose the Email option, you’ll have the opportunity to “Send using Adobe Acrobat” OR “Save a local copy and manually send it later”. Choose the local copy option and then attach the form (which will be named filename_distributed.pdf) to your email message. This way you can use the bcc option in your email program to send the form anonymously.

I need to follow the instructions just the opposite to what is stated. I need to distribute a form to over 100 people that I do not want to show or identify their email addresses so they are labeled undefined. I need to have the form “attach” to the email with a note that states, “please return this completed form to Suzie Q @ Not to me. I’m going to try this, but right now the form is not allowing me to save a copy; only to print it out. How do I have it saved with a new name and returned to Suzie Q????
