Locking out other users from Outlook

At work I use a workstation using Windows 98. I also use Microsoft Outlook 98. I would like to lock other co-workers out of my inbox. Preferably, I would like to lock other workers out of Outlook all together since I am the only one who uses it. Other co-workers have access to the workstation as part of their job but only I recieve email from other departments. How can I keep my Outlook private?

You didn't specify on whether or not you connect to a Microsoft Exchange server or keep your mail in a PST file.

In any event, your options are:

1) Microsoft Exchange - Set the options on this service to prompt for a user id/password.  (See Tools | Services | Properties on MS Exchange | Advanced tab | Set the authentication setting at the bottom to None.

2) If you have your mail delivered to a PST file, the best you can do is password protect the pst file. (Right click on Personal Folders and select Properties | Advanced | Change Password.)  Warning: do not lose this password as Microsoft doesn't have a utility to reset it.
