How to password protect Mail application

Boy do I feel stupid.  After 10 years in the software business, I've just obtained my first Mac running OS X Panther.  I have a very simple question.  How do I password protect the built-in Mail application?  What I want to happen is this: When you click on Mail, you will be immediately prompted for a password, otherwise the application will not launch.  So easy with Windows and Outlook, I can't believe its not more obvious.  Please help - I've been generous with the points.

Well isn't that nice.  I don't think my significant other will accept that she can't use my username and password.  I guess I just won't use this machine for certain e-mail accounts.  - Thanks for the info.

It's very simple to set up a separate account for someone else. You can switch back and forth between them on the fly while keeping both people logged in with their processes running in the background.
