Is there a way to lock outlook from even launching without a password? A person can launch outlook and see all old emails but just cant see the new ones because they dont have the server password. Does that make sense?

Doesn't look doable, unless you use 3rd party software: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook-help/set-a-password-to-help-protect-your-outlook-information-HA001113851.aspx

Applies to
Microsoft Office Outlook® 2003
Microsoft Outlook® 2000 and 2002

Currently there is no way to password protect Outlook on startup or to lock Outlook if you need to quickly walk away from your computer other than by using your Microsoft Windows® logon password or by using third-party software written specifically to password protect Outlook.
