You need to apply the security to the PDF file itself. You can do that with Acrobat, or with a third party component like iTextSharp.

Apply password protection to the PDF and then send that PDF inside the email. You may have to use a third party tool to achieve this.

You'll need to password and encrypt to protect a PDF file. The following examples show how this can be achieved using ABCpdf...
Doc theDoc = new Doc();
theDoc.FontSize = 96;
theDoc.Encryption.Type = 2;
theDoc.Encryption.Password = "mypassword";
Dim theDoc As Doc = New Doc()
theDoc.FontSize = 96
theDoc.Encryption.Type = 2
theDoc.Encryption.Password = "mypassword"
Theses examples use 128-bit encryption. Further information on Doc.Encryption, including how to set user permissions, can be found
