Problems processing Acrobat forms with PHP

It's a real simple script. All we do is have users fill out a form with information and it's sent to a php file on the server, which then sends an e-mail to the admin with the user's input then sends a thank you e-mail to the user. I used regular web forms using the post method with input tags. The php code recognized the values of regular htm forms, but we are converting all of our forms to PDF.
I am having problems with Acrobat form submission. I tried sending the data using the http submit/post, but I cannot figure out how to stop it from displaying the user input inline (ie. name=nameaddress=addresscity=citystate=state). Our clients cannot receive e-mails with everything inline like that. I cannot send it using mailto: or by the default e-mail either because the clients cannot receive attachments.
I heard that sending the form via xml and parsing it would work, but when I use the parser it needs the exact .xml file name and every time someone submits a form the file name changes.

Does anyone know how to use the http submit method in acrobat and stop the text from displaying inline, how to parse the xml, or of any other ways that will make the text display correctly?

In php: Create a new file, save the http-post string into that file, and send the file to the parser.
