Using exchange server .The problem is anyone can turn on your computer go to outlook
And access your email,except for new mails you have to connect to the server.
Does anyone out there knows how to prompt outlook to ask for a password

by design, outlook will try to use the account currently logged in to authenticate to the exchange server.

can anyone turn on the computer and log in as you?

"tools" -- "Email Accounts" -- "view or change existing email accounts" -- select the profile and select "Change" -- click "More Settings" -- go to the "Security" tab.
The lower portion has a drop down list to change security settings and a checkbox for prompted PW

when everyone can log in to your computer with your identity you have a great security problem. i?ll hope you have no internet-access on your workstation, anyone can surf from your pc to sex/crime etc... a password is useless when your .pst file have no permission and can load from other users. remember that your admin can read ALL your mails if he or your boss want it. better you use private mails from home.

As answer #2 stated above,is correct but at your workplace, your logon box probably now says nt authorization, do the dropdown box and make it none. then restart outlook.
