Can't stop him from accessing your Exchange mailbox if he/she has god rights. ;)  (Have to hope for a person w/ ethics.)

As for the PST - fairly secure and no politically correct way to reset the password.  Just remember, that there are always some out there that will find a way to circumvent the security.

Good luck...

I'm not sure if it is still true with Outlook 2000 pst files, but I do know that there is (was) a cracker available to break the, apparently with ease.

You may use PGP (or another free- or share-ware encrypting software) to encrypt all your confident mail.

The way to see if someone has been going into your mailbox is to check the security event log of the exchange server that you mailbox resides on.  And it will show anyone who has been into a mailbox if they are not the primary nt account user.
