How do I keep Outlook from launching except with a password.

I have a client that said this was working before but unable to find how. She doesn't want Outlook to launch at all with out a password. Currently it asks for a password but even if you don't enter a password you still can browse through all her emails. She doesn't want this to happen.

Hi,

Outlook is domain joined?

The mailbox is hosted in Exchange, Office 365?

Is her mail stored on a PST or on the server (OST)? If mail is on the server, recreate the profile and when prompted for a password, don't check the box to remember it. If her mail is stored on the local computer, you can encrypt the PST.

Bigger question to ask is why is this a concern? The first step to stop unauthorized use is to lock her computer when she is not there. If someone else need to use the computer, maybe there is a better way to do it with a separate account?

I know my exact words. But she has sometimes other logging in on the PC and doesn't want them to open Outlook. I would say if there is no real solution that if they need this create different profiles. My security thinking is everyone should have their own login.

Agreed.

Anyway, assuming most computers will be graded to Windows 10 very soon, you can setup dynamic lock for the computer with the mail profile so that Dynamic Lock can automatically lock your PC when your Bluetooth phone goes out of range.
