    Protect (2002/SP3)

    How do I protect Outlook so I'm the only one who has access to it?

    Outlook doesn't really have a way to deny access to the application itself, but you can paswword-protect your .pst file - the file that contains all your e-mails, contacts, appointments etc.:

    I set up a password, but when I open Outlook, I still can access the email folders, calendar, etc. without having to enter the password. Where am I going wrong?

    1) Make sure that there are no instances of Outlook active any more before restarting Outlook. You can check this in the Processes tab of the Task Manager, or you can restart your PC.

    2) As noted in the Microsoft article I referred to, make sure that the Save this password in your password list check box is cleared.
