Submission + - Password protected emails 1

DeanLearner writes: I've been asked to look into whether it's possible to password protect an email so that a password has to be entered to read the content. Ideally, the recipient (members of the public; so varying computer skills) will not have to modify their email client at all to perform this.

The most popular solution googling seems to show is, attach a password protected document and go from there, but I'd like to avoid this as it relies on the recipient having certain document reading software.

My suggested solution was to email them a link to our website, once the password (which is told over the phone) is correctly entered, the message is shown. But the powers that be are keen to avoid this if possible.

Personally, I can't see anything easier/quicker than my solution, but if anyone out there thinks otherwise, please let me know.
