Thank you for your comments and advises. My trust lead me to the following:
(I have translated the headings/names here from German)
=> inserted a (PDF)CommandButton "submit" at the end of the document
=> in (pdf options)field properties: Action > Type "Send Form"
and then in "Send Data to URL" (desktop email client already set up in adobe reader
preferences (kmail): mailto:bharatiya at mahavidya.net
At the end generated a pdf-form
in Reader 7.0
-filled in the form and
-clicked the button "submit"
The email clien is called up.
The form is attached but as *.fdf (Netscape Reader!!!!!)
Sent the mail (obviously to me)
On receiving the mail I saved the attachment under the same name test.fdf
in Adobe Reader 7.0
And there was the form fill all the details in it!!!
Probably some of you might find it useful
