the VMS Mail utility itself does not support encryption.
There seem to be PGP implementations around for OpenVMS VAX and even a TPU macro for using PGP from VMS mail, see:

I am using a PGP encryption provided by my company then how i can code it in the subject line of the mail
My requirement is to encrypt the message file and how to code it in the subject line is there any syntax for that and what output i will get if i use the PGP encryption can i see th whole message or it will be blank.PLease clarify my doubt.

If you are sending mail using VMS mail, and you are hoping that putting "[PGP]" in the subject line will magically cause the message to be encrypted, that will not work.
>>>"I am using a PGP encryption provided by my company"
Have you considered asking your local support folks, since they are the ones that are providing PGP?

You might want to check the mime tool (run sys$system:mime) for creating mail messages with attachments.

note that the MIME tool is only available on OpenVMS VAX V7.1 (or higher).
As already said, VMS MAIL does NOT support encryption. You may be able to use some freeware tool to encrypt your mail and then send that encrypted file with OpenVMS Mail, but this needs a better understanding of what you are actually trying to do...

The main requirement is that the command procedure that I am executing generates a report file by executing a cobol program the client needs wants the report e-mailed and the e-mail needs to be encrypted.
I am able to attach the report file to the body of the email message but for encrypting the email message I am giving [PGP] in the subject line Is it the correct way or not.The mail will be encrypted or not If I use it like this as shown belo
$SUBJECT_LINE = "[PGP] Encompas FeedRejects,Please reload"
$@MENU:NOTIFY "prgmname" "''SUBJECT_LINE'" 'R1 "''MAILFILE_SPEC'"
$ EXIT SAVE_STATUS
where 'R1 is the report file logical name.
I think it is clear now.

all the handling of your mail is buried in the NOTIFY.COM procedure. We can't know or even guess, what this procedure does. Please contact whoever supports NOTIFY.COM at your site.
