Hi!  I could use some help. My company plans to send out critical data to our clients in encrypted PDF format. Is there a danger that they could be blocked in the future as virus scanners become more sophisticated and conclude that they could be carrying malware?

    The question title says "email", but an AV false positive could be signaled regardless of transmission medium. In any case, yes, there is always a chance that one or more could be blocked. If that's a serious obstacle, then don't use e-mail as a file-transfer protocol. Use a real file-transfer protocol instead. -- Tom
