I would recommend downloading and installing 7-Zip. You can encrypt the file and put a password on the attachment as well.

Use 256bit on the encryption, that is what we use for our confidential files.

TechOps07,

How would I encrypt the file? How is that done? Once encrypted, how do I send it using 7-zip?
