Chapter 1. Email and Spam Annoyances > OUTLOOK 2003 AND OUTLOOK EXPRESS 6

OUTLOOK 2003 AND OUTLOOK EXPRESS 6

PASSWORD-PROTECT OUTLOOK 2003 AND OUTLOOK EXPRESS 6

The Annoyance:

I'll admit that I'm paranoid. I worry that anyone can read the Outlook 2003 and Outlook Express 6 email that I've received or am about to send, so I log off my computer every time I leave my desk. Isn't there an easier way to protect my email privacy?

The Fix:

Outlook and Outlook Express both let you password-protect your inbox, out-box, and all mail folders. In Outlook, choose File → Data File Management. Select the folder you want to protect, then choose Settings → Change Password. Choose a password, verify it, and click OK, and then click OK again. From now on, only someone who knows the password can read your mail. By the way, the folder you're password-protecting isn't a single folder—it's an entire collection of folders, such as all your archived mail, or all your personal mail folders (inbox, sent mail, outbox, and so on).
