How do I secure my offline folder with a password in Outlook 2003

We are using Microsoft Exchange Server.  Whenever I open Outlook 2003 it lists available profiles.  If I click on my email profile it prompts me for a password, but if anyone was to cancel out of the login prompt they would have full access to any emails already recieved.  Is there a way to make it so that if someone was to open Outlook they wouldn't be able to view my email without my password?  I don't ever use my laptop offline so an offline folder isn't something I need.  If this needs to be eliminated in order to do this, how would I do that?

The main source for Outlook security is the machine itself. If you can login to the machine then you will have access to all of the files on that machine.
The username and password prompt is for Exchange, not Outlook.

Outlook 2003 uses the offline file in cached mode. You could take Outlook out of cached mode - so that it was live to the Exchange server. That may have a performance impact and some parts of Outlook (The client side Junk Mail filter for example) do not work unless Outlook 2003 is in cached mode.
