E-mailing reports There is an option to encrypt your data using PKZIP for the I-Series. This will allow you to compress and optionally encrypt your attachments. The encrypted attachments can only be opened with a password that can be up to 64 characters long. You will need to be on KeyesMail version 6.0 or higher to use these features.

Once you have filled in the information and update the screen, you will be presented with  another window for inserting the password.
