    Hi,
    Using the PDF Print program, is there a way to have the PDF file password protected (either by zipping with a password or some other way) before attaching to the email?

    I would be willing to pay for this feature.

    Thanks,
    Tom

    Click the save as button and create a custom profile there. There you can also set a password for the file. After you have created a custom profile you can select that one via the profile selection box. Select your profile and click the email button. You custom profile will then be applied and your PDF in the email will be password protected.

    I've tried several times to protect a PDF with a password.
    I checked the checkbox to protect a PDF with a password; typed the password and then Continue.
    The PDF will be stored om my disk and when I double click it will open without asking a password.

    Maybe I am doing something wrong, but I've read the instruction several times and I don't know what is going wrong.

    Please enter the user password. There are two password fields. The first one is to encrypt the file and to apply the file permissions and second one has to be entered to open the file.

    I did exactly what you described, but still I could open the generated PDF form without password.
