Problem when sending emails from Adobe Acrobat Reader

The situation is that I open a document in Adobe Acrobat X Pro. Within Acrobat I select the email icon and the Outlook send email window appears with the attached file. Up to here fine.

Once the Outlook send mail window is open I do not have access to any of the other programs, the Outlook send window has all the focus; even alt + tab does not work to move to another application.

Is there a way to solve for this situation. I'm using Outlook 2010.

That is normal behavior - when the outlook form is opened from a 3rd party app it's "modal" and keeps focused until closed. At this time there is no solution, short of saving it as a draft and reopening or saving the document and attaching it instead of using Send to.
