Hi

I want to password a user profile in outlook2003 like i did in outlook express(identities) so that anyone else using my computer can't get at and mess with my emails and address book.

Is it possible, if so how ?

Im using windows xp pro and logon without using a password if that makes any difference.

Thanks for any help

Snoopz,

You can give password to outlook so that only by giving that you can enter outlook.May be this will protect

Open outlook
go to file --> data file management
select it and click settings
first time you have not given any password . I assume you donot have to give any old password

Type in some password  and set it up

Make sure you type the password  and you remember it
