Does anyone know of a way that I would be able to add some kind of password to Outlook so that when it is minimized, you would need to enter the password to maximize it? Right now, there is now way to keep people from walking into my office and opening up Outlook 98 which is already running and read my email.  Most other email programs that i have used have allowed for this type of security. Any ideas?
And i know about adding the password for the .pst file, but that Is only useful if you want to exit Outlook eveytime you read an email.

Does it matter if they can use the computer at all?

Just put password protection on your screensaver and set it to come up within 1 minute or start it up by hand when you leave.

jedewit, i have thought about this one, I was just surprised that Microsoft would release an email package that lacks as much
as a mininmized password. Every other email package I have used has incorporated some kind of password protection, but hats off to Microsoft again for forgeting a farely important part in my opinion.
