Could you [encode, encrypt, encipher] the file attachment for me?

I want to send the file by email. Could you [encode, encrypt, encipher] it for me? I don't know how to do that.

Do you find any of the encode, encrypt, or encipher unusual or wrong?

    I suspect they may be the wrong words to use in the context, as they all mean roughly to make the file impossible to read, even by the recipient, unless he/she has the means to decode or decipher it.

    But is that in fact what you're trying to say? :confused:

    Digital information is usually described as "encrypted", so "I want to send the file by email. Could you encrypt it for me? I don't know how to do that."
