    We can only assist with one issue per thread Richard, so I am moving your other thread to a new thread here: http://www.jotform.com/answers/597429 where we will assist you with your question in few moments.

    Now in regards to the first question about having a form in the email.

    Please note that not all email clients will parse scripts that are needed for the form to work properly and that those that do, will most certainly block the scripts from being run in order to protect their users/owners.

    Now there is also an issue that your form would be seen as a 'bad thing' so such emails are most likely to be removed as soon as they hit the email server.

    The only way to have the form in the email is to have the direct link to the form placed in the email - not to have it embedded.
