Lock Outlook desktop when away from desk

Is there a way to 'lock' the Outlook desktop when away from the desk? Our log in to Outlook is tied to Active Directory so, once the use is logged on to the computer, Outlook does not require a password to open.

I’m not sure if you can just lock Outlook from unauthorised access. I found a utility called Boot Locker,Shareware or Freeware that locks your computer and needs a password for access. I have tried hacking in but was unsuccessful. Just don’t forget the password.

Good Luck

    Depending upon the OS you're using you should be able to just lock the desktop. Press CTRL+ALT+DEL and see if "Lock Desktop" or "Lock Workstation" appears as an option. Windows Key + L will lock Windows XP. If the machine is part of your domain the user will have to enter their password to unlock it again. -B-

    if it's just Outlook you are worried about, set it to prompt for whick account to logon to and set security to None instead of NT Authentication. Then close it when away from your desk
