I am wondering if I can put a password on Outlook so that when a user opens their profile it asks for a password to access their e-mail.  I am using Outlook 2000 and is set up as a Corporate/Workgroup but am only using Internet e-mail.  I have multiple users on one computer and would like to keep e-mails private.

Currently there is no way to password protect Outlook on startup or to lock Outlook if you need to quickly walk away from your computer other than by using your Microsoft Windows logon password or by using third-party software written specifically to password protect Outlook. However, you can set a password on your Personal Folders file (.pst).

Also, review this articles from Microsoft Office Online:
