Yes this option is available with Symantec PDF Email Protection as Encrypt body text and all attachments, which encrypts the email body and the attachments as a secure PDF file.

For more information, see Encrypt Body Text and all Attachments page in admin guide below.

Yes.  It will embed the attachment onto the PDF.  Then a password is used to view/access the PDF

Hi guys,

I already found the problem, not all PDF readers work. I tried Adobe Reader and Foxit Phantom Reader these work, you have to know to find the attachments embedded in each application.

Thank you.
