and where is the problem. i tried your pdf and it seems to do exactly what it should: send the information you entered to your address using the proper email client.

(it didn't work on my system because adobe acrobat has not (an easy) way to talk to a random email client when you don't have a "normal" desktop environment... but this is another problem which we should discuss deeper in a generic windows 7 thread).

the warning you see, comes from adobe reader and tells you that only the content of the form will be sent and not the whole pdf. no idea if this is of any use for any user, but it's there.

have you tried to send the form and experienced any problem?
