I don't know if this is possible but I want some way of emailing (preferably mail merging) a form for my recipients to fill in and send back to me electronically. I want this form to have drop down menus, a box where they can type in a response and a check box (the check box is not essential).

This form needs to display and function correctly when opening through lots of different email accounts (gmail, btinternet.com e.t.c)

I don't want there to be a link to an outside website as it would not give the right professional impression I am looking to give.

I have heard you can do this with PDF as an attachment/link (this type of link, i.e. not to an external source, would be fine), this could be a viable option but the fewer clicks my recipients have to maker the better (reduces the risk of confusion on their part, they can get very easily confused!)

So here's hoping it's possible!

Outlook doesn't support "active email" so it won't work in outlook. You could do it using a word file or a pdf, but the users need to fill it out and send the file back to you.

Honestly, a link to a form on the web (like many companies use for surveys) might be easiest for everyone - and the results are sent to you in a database so its ready to work with.
