Preview password protected documents
We receive hundreds of password protected documents (excel, word, pdf) from our clients. For security purposes, we want to avoid storing confidential document on local PC and instead view them on the Web.

Outlook on the web manages to preview attached word docs which are password protected so it's possible to have this. Without it, it's pretty much impossible to get collaboration to happen on these files. I guess you might be seeing a risk of leakage of information from the password protected file into the comments against it, but surely it wouldn't be impossible to tie the ability to see/add comments to the successful previewing of the file?
This is a needed feature. For now the entire document needs to be downloaded then password has to be supplied in order to preview a document. In some cases the documents could be large.
We've run into this issue with password protected pdf files.
