    Sign On (Outlook 2003)

    I would like to sign on to outlook when I open it. Right now, if my computer is on, anyone can open my email. Do you know how to change this?

    Is this on a company machine connected to a Exchange server?

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    It is tied in with your domain log in.
    Check with your IT support people and see what they have to say.

    If you are concerned about security and your OS is 2000 or higher, it is more common to set a machine level Lock.

    I'm at work and don't have Admin rights, so some of my menu access is disabled, but generally you should find options under Control Panel, Display, and Contol Panel, Power Options, to set when the machine is automatically put in Lock mode after a set period of inactivity. In XP Pro you can also configure Alt-Ctrl-Delete to bring up the menu to Lock the machine, as well as log off the current user, show Task Manager, and some other options. Locking the machine in this context means you will need a password to re-enter the applications on that machine. I expect there will be some threads on machine level password management in the Windows XP Forum, assuming that's your OS.

    Further to what <!profile=JohnBF>JohnBF<!/profile> says, you can also configure your screen saver to request a password when you reactivate. HTH
