    OK, I know that you can password a pst file so when you start Outlook you are required to enter it. From what I can find on the net, you cannot just password individual folders. Just wondering if anyone has found a method for doing so? Don't know why Outlook would not have this feature.

    One strange thing I have found since I have added the password, I can no longer click on a hyperlink and have it go to the location. Get a message that the system administrator has prevented me from doing so. I have to cut and paste the url to the address bar in my browser. Now since I am the administrator and know I didn't make any changes, I assume that it is a result of adding the password. Is my assumption correct?

    1. No, you cannot password protect individual folders, and I have not seen an add-in to do this, though one may be out there. But you could create a new PST and move to it the folders you want password protected. Outlook can run with multiple PSTs.
    2. I haven't seen where password protecting a PST causes this problem, but one never knows. See Post 717882 and the downstream posts referenced in it and see if they help.
