The problem is that you cant just say that it will send to Outlook
It can be a webmail and such. You will NEVER know what client a person is using.

The secure way... well.. how about sending a link to some page that will require a password and a username to be accessed. That page will have all the information. I dont know what else you could do. You may want to look at your SMTP server settigns to see what you can do there. SMTP servers use SSL Certificates as i recall..

I agree.. imho email is not secure at all.. you shouldn't send critial info via email even if it is encrypted.

I agree too!
The best option is, no doubt, providing an online and secured (at least username/password) way, so user can get access to this kind of information.
Also my guess is there must be some XSD trick to provide/delivering this data in some way, however... i'm not sure about my ideas! :?
