Currently Being ModeratedNov 28, 2006 6:48 AM (in response to Judy)Judy, DMG files are disk images, and thus only readable on a Macintosh. To send a protected file to a Windows user, your best bet is to use ZIP compression with encryption.
Unfortunately, I don't know of any free utilities that create encrypted ZIPs.
However, there is a very well reviewed shareware ($20) application called BetterZip that can create encrypted ZIPs that are WinZip (a popular Windows program) compatible.
FYI, OS X creates unprotected ZIP files with its "Create Archive of" function in the Finder, so that's always an option if you're ever sending something that isn't sensitive.Dual G5 2.0Ghz, Mac OS X (10.4.7)
