Password Protection for Outlook Users.

By JohnCYK ·
Is there a way to protect unauthorized use for Outlook Users even if they are still logged on to Windows NT?

Can the user be asked for the NT Login Password again before allowing user to logon to Exchange Server?

Eg. like ccMail, users can minimize the client and a password protection can be enabled.

Password Protection for Outlook Users.

If these are very data sensitive PC's and there is a security problem going on, which seems to be the case by your question, you should use all the password protection that you can. Make the users change their passwords every thirty days and make them have to be at least 7 characters and unique--do this in system policies. Also, since you have MS office, add the screen saver button to the shortcut bar, set it for 3-5 minutes and have the user password protect it as well. If there is still a problem with someone accessing someone elses' mail, institute a policy that the machines have to be shut down if the user is away from the desk. Good luck to you.

The administrator could just configure the Mail in the Control Panel and change the Exchange NT Authentication to None, then the user will be required to enter their Username, Domain and Password in order to access to their own messages.

You must have configured your outlook profiles with 'NT Password Authentication'. Change your Outlook profile, under 'Advanced' tab, and under 'Logon Network security', chose 'none' instead of 'NT Password Authentication'. This forces the outlook users to provide their user name and password again to open their mailbox.

Assign a password to the Outlook app itself. From the folder list, right-click on the Personal folder at the top, choose Properties, then click the Advanced button. Click "Change Password" and follow the prompts. Users need to quit Outlook when they'll be away from their desks, and prying eyes won't be able to snoop.
