Greetings, RekhaSLee.

Folders in an Exchange mailbox cannot be password protected.  They're already protected by the requirement to log in to get to the Exchange mailbox at all.

Cheers!

Hi
Thank you for the reference notes. I really do not want to create another personal folder as we want only one folder in outlook. Is there any other way to password the exchange mailbox itself.
