Well, you can put a password on a personal folders file (pst).  Right click on the top level folder and go to properties.  Click on advanced and then change password.  But be aware that this is not a 100% guarantee that they will not be able to access your pst.  There are many password cracker utilities out there that work very well.

Set password when opening Outlook:

1. open Outlook, click Tools \ Services \ Highlight Microsoft Exchange then click Properties.
2. Click Advanced Tab
3. Under Logon Network Security box, change it to NONE.

It will prompt the password everytime you open Outlook.  It will allow everyone can use your applications but will need password to open your email.

Thanks for the two comments...however I have tried both, and whilst I have managed to create password protection for my Outlook, the password is no different from that which gives access to my other files, so I'm really no better off. I have tried to change the password to my Outlook folders, but I am told that access to password change is denied!
Guess I'm still looking for the perfect answer!
