I have adobe reader on my computer and I need to email an pdf file and password protect it, is that possible with the reader version?
Moving this question to the Adobe Acrobat forum, since it's not related to CreatePDF.
No, you cannot password protect a PDF with Reader. This requires Adobe Acrobat. See the "Protect" section here. A trial is here.
It would not be possible through Adobe reader as reader is not meant for editing, modifying or updating the PDF. You would require Adobe Acrobat to achieve this task.
