I'm guessing you don't know the password in question?

Depending on the strength of the password, you could be at this for months, if not years.
Since RAR 2.0 your forced to use brute force. And this can be processor intensive. I doubt you'd find anything that will run on the DHD.

Try looking --> Here and do it from your computer.

If you know the password, could you not open it on your PC and re-zip it unprotected.

I can but still I need an app which can do it on my DHD, like opening from email attachment a password protected .zip or .rar

I personally don't know of an app that will do it.

Your only option now is to start trawling the Android Market, luckily they have just released the web based Market. Give it a try --> Here

"UnRar Free" (or the PRO version if you buy it) will do this for you.

Is that a Samsung Galaxy firmware? You'd have better luck asking in the relevant device forum. Where did you download it from? What took you there? Etc..

Sadly we at XDA do not have crystal balls to answer the vaguest of questions.

Search for ArchiDroid in the market and it will do your job... It extracts password-protected RAR, ZIP, TAR, GZIP, BZIP2 and 7zip files... amazingly it is free... Unrar didn't work for me but this one works like a charm
