I don't think it is possible to require a password to load Outlook, it is allowed to password protect the email account itself. Microsoft recommends password protected the windows login account. If the Outlook is linked to an Exchange account you may have more options for security. Perhaps there may be a third party solution to this but I have not searched the Internet for it.

rhythmluvr, I haven't tried any 3rd party solution either. Might have to.
