    Hiya

    You could encrypt the files using a program such as PGP http://www.pgpi.org/

    You will create a passkey for the encyption and you could send users this key, as this is safer, or you could just email the phrase. This will then allow them to received the CD, but not view any contents until they enter the passkey. Apparently, is unhackable.

    Or, you could look here for anything that tickles your fancy

    http://www.webattack.com/Shareware/security/swencrypt.shtml

    personally, I would go for PGP, but thats just my opinion. Its pretty indepth, but then thats what you'll be wanting, I assume.

    Regards
