Outlook Profiles - private emails

Hello - we have a computer that is shared among many users. I have set each user up with a separate email profile (using exchange 2000 and outlook 2007).  Everything is working fine - but if I select a user profile, then when it asks for my username/password, hit cancel, it still takes me in to the user that was on last.   So someone can read that last persons email.   Can we prevent that somehow?  Or is there someway that the last user can actually "log off" instead of just exiting outlook?

thanks

Yes there is... if you are using POP or IMap mail in Outlook.

If you are using Exchange accounts this works differently (let me know).

But again, when upinig POP mail you can set a password on each PST file (user e-mail "flat" database for Outlook)

Here are some instructions:

Once each profile's PST has a password, they will only be able to access their own e-mail/Cal/Contacts.

Try this.. Disable the outlook cached mode.
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook/HP010223431033.aspx.
Delete the *.ost files from %userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook"
Now check if the users are able to view last users email's.

If required you can disable Cached Exchange Mode through the Registry

If you are all using the same PC, on a Microsoft Server Domain (2K3/2K8) and have an Exchange server, is there a reason that you do not each have your own personal PC (XP/Vista) log-on?

If you each have an Exchange account, then you must have an Active Directory account.

SO whay not be completely secure and have everyone log on as themselves to the PC?

It's best practice, unless you are using that PC in a way that prevents this (like POS).

Thanks Subsun:   disabling outlook cached mode did the trick.  
The reason I am not having each user log into Windows separately is that this is a nursing group that utilizes the same two or 3 applications and rather than have 25 different logins - it is much simpler to just give them separate email profiles.
Thanks!
