log off of outlook?

My sister is trying to figure out how to log off and on to outlook so that others cannot just read her e-mail. I went and tired to figure it out for her, but I can not see how to do it.

She is running Windows XP home I think, that or Pro.

Is there a way that you can keep others from being able to read your e-mail in outlook?

I assume you mean Outlook Express. If you truly mean Outlook, the process below is slightly different.

Under Tools, Accounts, choose the account and press Properties. Under the Servers tab, erase the password and uncheck Remember Password. She will have to enter in her password each time she opens Outlook Express to read her email.

No, she is using outlook. Why she does not use outlook express is beyond me, but that is what she wants to do.

I don't use Outlook ... but what I will recommend is that she log out of WINDOWS and give others another WINDOWS account.

on a stand alone windows box, it is best to have each person use their own logon and password. If you are on a Windows domain, you can set outlook to prompt for password every time it is opened. The option for this is on the more settings button on the exchange server properties (outlook xp)
