I have Win XP with Outlook 2003
I have my own user profile with a screen saver that is password protected.

But all I really want to password protect in my e-mail .
I have a password to access new mail coming in, but if someone just clicked on the desktop icon all previous e-mails are accessable.
Can I password protect this application?

There are 3 seperate useres on this pc.
I use Outlook 2003, also one other uses it also, on their user profile.
I'm not on a network. This is a home pc.

Thanx

If you're using a data file, password protect it:
Control Panel/Mail/Data Files
Choose the name and click settings
Click Change Password

If all users have their own profile, then when they log in, the only thing they should see is their OWN Outlook.

(it also would depend what rights the other users have.  If they are all administrators,  then they will have access to other peoples files on the computer.  If they are "users"  then the only files they will be able to see are their own.)

Hope this helps

Ok I think I have it.
I password protected the data file.
I have to see if it works with the other users also.

Thanx
