Which email client can be configured so that it only opens if you enter a Master Password to allow access to view the emails?
This needs to work with Office 365 email.
Thank you.

Outlook can do that. Go to the Account settings screen where you can choose cached more or not, click More Settings, click the Security tab, select Always Prompt for Logon Credentials. That will require users to enter their O365 password before they can access email every time. You can also force the setting and prevent users from changing it with a group policy setting using the office admin templates. This won't affect PST files, though, so you'll need another solution for those. Encrypting with GnuPG might be a good solution. I don't know of an email client that forces password entry to start the application, though.
