Way Setup Outlook "Master" Profile with Multiple Mailbox Accounts (Requiring Password Logon)?

Posted on 2009-04-30
Last Modified: 2012-05-06
We have a intern computer that is shared by 8 or 9 different interns. There is a "master" account that logs into the computer so they can access all the resources from there (ex. application-specific things).

I would like to know if there is a way in Outlook (2007) to set it up so that when they open Outlook from the generic account it lets them choose their mailbox from a list or whatever and asks them for their logon password.

    Hi, RTM2007.

    Yes, there is.

    1.  Open the Control Panel
    2.  Double-click the Mail icon
    3.  Click the Show Profiles button
    4.  Select the option "Prompt for profile to be used"

    Create a profile for each intern and ensure that it is set to require a password.

    Where is the option to set that ensures it can require a password everytime you open up that Outlook/profile?
