Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If your Outlook is connected to an exchange server, it should ask for a password when you first open it.  If it is connected to a POP3 server, then in the settings, you should have already inputted your account name and password so that it will download the mail automatically.

    Yes. But the question isn't clear at all. What exactly is the problem? -- Tom

    I have added a macros in Outlook 2003. I can disable the macros using a button that is currently present in Outlook 2003. For security purposes I dont want others to make use of this functionality from my mailbox. What I want is a password prompt should appear when the disable button is clicked

    Your 'mailbox' isn't related to any macros you have created for your copy of Outlook. Your request doesn't make much sense. Your "button" wouldn't stop someone from accessing your mailbox from a different copy of Outlook on a different PC. You protect your mailbox by setting a user ID and password on the e-mail account.   And if you're concerned about others using your PC, then you set a user ID and password on the PC. Don't let them access your Outlook in the first place. Have them use their own.   If this is a business PC, you can't control it completely anyway. If it's your personal home PC and you let others use it under your PC account, then they have the same authority to remove any "buttons" as you do. It wouldn't protect anything.   But you can just have your macro request a "password". It won't do much good, but you could simply exit the macro if the "password" is incorrect.   Tom
