I'd like to protect OE "folders" (not folsers) I'm sorry for the syntax mistake :-).

If you are using OE5, you can apply a password to your identity, but there is nothing on actually password protecting individual folders/files.

Free Tool: ZipGrep

ZipGrep is a utility that can list and search zip (.war, .ear, .jar, etc) archives for text patterns, without the need to extract the archive's contents.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way to say thank you for being a part of the community.

Hi Neo
Where I can set that password in OE5 ?
Does it protect my emails from malicious eyes ?

From inside OE5.
 - File > Identities > Managage
 - Highlight Identity in question
 - Select Properties
 - Select Change Password

The method will stop someone from using the OE5 client on that machine but doesn't change the physical layout of the files.  (Basically someone could still copy those files to another machine and see your mail.)

Oh... I should mention that you should not forget this password since there isn't a way to reset it.
