Is this in an exchange environment?

If so, try this:

Outlook > Tools > Services > Microsoft Exchange Server: Properties > Advanced Tab > Logon Network Security > Change to None.

This will require the user to input a password in order to gain access.

OL2000: (IMO) How To Password Protect a Personal Folder (.PST)
UMMARY
In Microsoft Outlook it is possible to prevent others from accessing your mail, contacts, and calendars by assigning a password to your personal folders.
MORE INFORMATION
To add a password to your personal folders follow these steps:


If the Folder List is not visible, then click Folder List on the View menu.
Right-click "Outlook Today - [Personal Folders]", and then click Properties For "Personal Folders" on the shortcut menu.
On the General tab, click Advanced.
Click Change Password.
In the Change Password dialog box, type your new password and verify it by typing it a second time.
Make sure that the "Save this password in your password list" check box is cleared (not checked). This prevents the password from being cached. You will need to type it each time you run Outlook.
After you have entered the password successfully, click OK three times.
The next time you start Outlook, you will be prompted to type a password before viewing the contents of the personal folder.

Try showing all items.  Something similar to (in windows explorer) Tools > Folder Options > View Tab > Hidden Files: Show All Files.  Then look.
