General email client question

Hello guys,

I have a general question about email client. I tried Outlook, Eudora, IncrediMail and Thunderbird but what I didn't like about them is that if someone gets on
my computer and opens the email client even if he/she doesn't know the password it can cancel the password prompt and still be able to read my old emails,
just won't be able to download new emails. I need a client that will open and ask for password and unless you supply password you won't be able to see
neither, old nor new emails. Can Outlook be configured that way? Or IncrediMail....

Thanks in advance,

Dedo

What is the option for Outlook 2000? I didn't see Data File Management under File menu.

Thanks,
DM

You can protect Outlook entirely.

Change the password for your .pst file
On the File menu, click Data File Management.
Click the .pst file you want, and then click Settings.
Click Change Password and fill in the boxes with your old and new password.
To have your computer remember your password so that you don't have to type it in each time you open the .pst, select the Save this password in your password list check box.
Click OK.
Note   Even if you select the Save this password in your password list check box, make a note of your password in case you need to open the .pst on another computer.
