Password Protection

First of all, Your boss has the right to do that if he owns the Exchange box (it is his equipment). Second if you really want to do that you will have to use some encryption program or you can use a different email address. Exchange also offers encryption but if you use Exchange encryption your Exchange Admin will still be able to read your email. Even if you use encyprion your boss will still be able to see logs of your emails.

Yes it's right, you're boss have the right to read your email especially if it is work related, but if you would like to put some protection, you can do it with your Microsoft Outlook by putting a password on your personal folder.

You can select your personal by:

1. Clicking View on your menu bar, then Folder List and select your personal folder on the list. It may look like this "Outlook Today - [Personal Folder]". Or,

2. Click File on your menu bar, then Folder, then Properties for "Outlook Today - [Personal Folder]".

Once the Dialog box is show, click the Advanced button and a new dialog box will be displayed. From there you can see another button - "Change password button".

The password you can use is any password different from your login password. Just don't forget it. :)

Newyorker211, No offence intended by rejecting your response.I probably could have worded my Q a little differently.My boss has the right to do this yes, I can have different emails etc.I simply wanted to know if I could password protect inbox folder which has since been answered.I was more interested in security than trying to deceive my boss.Thanks again and thanks to rcgran.
