I need to automate a process that generates a report for a each customer in a list, saves it as a pdf file, then in order to provide security, it zips the file and password protects it.  Finally, it emails it out, with a second email containing the password getting sent right after the first one.
I've got the program generating the pdf, zipping it up and emailing it out.  I haven't been able to figure out how to password protect it.
If it would be easier to password protect a pdf instead, that could be an option.

Thanks for any help,
