the pdf solution seems to be a good workaround, if I will need it later.

a question to pdf. writer (never heard about Doro before - but found it now 
in internet):
Is it possible to set directly (eg. with OPAL) some properties for the
printed pdf-file (before it's created or after it's printed)?
- set owner and user passwords (to encrypt it)
- set some properties (e.g. pdf can be printed, but not modified ...)

In this case it'll be usable for sending most of the created PDFs directly
with e-mail to the addressee (and not to print them out).

Rem.: I solved this with FreeSpirePDF [Ver 10.2.0 don't use watermarks for
small pdfs - i.e. 1-2 pages] to send invoices with e-mails to customers.
Only thing to do, is to negotiate with the customer a password first. This
solution works just for x64 win-versions (64 bit). For me it's ok, but there
are some users, who uses x86 (32 bit) win-versions by now and therefore it's
not generally usable for all users.
