ADS with password encrytion for PDf docs


I have just installed AS Java and set up ADS, it is working just perfectly,

We have a requirement to encrypt the PDF (payslips) using password, we already have the required s/w codes integrated in SAP which encrypts and delivers the payslips thru email to the users, but just that once the PDF is encrytped and send to the user thru email, we are unable to open the PDF document, error pops up as below, whereas unencrypted PDF forms just get delivered and are able to open without any issues.

Only encryption does not work, please guide what should be the approach to be followed here?

There is no requirement to edit the forms so interactive adobe forms and reader right credentials are not requested from SAP.

Kindly guide..
