At least one of the 3rd-party Crystal report schedulers listed at http://www.kenhamady.com/bookmarks.html provides this functionality.  It even allows you to dynamically set the password based on a field/formula from the report (in case you are bursting the report and each email recipient should have their own password.  It also allows you to set various protection options for the pdf.
