    What software are you using?
    It can't be the reader
    You actually secure it for different options, like can it be printed, can it be copied, can it be saved, etc.

    trying to gather information here to help so bear with me

    You want to send out the same email to 100 customers and every customer will get the same email with 100 invoice attachments and you want them to type in a password to open only the invoice that pertains to them? Did I get that right

    Come to think of it, you are better off going straight to the source for this question.
    I would ask Gopher what they do for an application like this, it will save you a lot of time I would think, they have probably had this same question a lot and know exactly what to do

    I know nothing about gopher software

    It seems to me what you are looking for is automated billing software

    I know my webguy uses it for his customer base and bills quarterly with the bill in PDF format but I think he uses quick books.

    I really don't know, just trying to head you in the right direction

    I say pick up the phone and call gopher

    I could go for the hidden files on the website idea, but the other...I don't know how many clients you have that would get this email but I would think it could become a fairly large file(s) quickly. And I wouldnt be impressed with having to download a 3,4, 5 or larger MB email just to get my bill.
