Password protecting notes in Outlook 2003

by Jace888 / January 1, 2007 10:18 AM PST

I have used a palm device for many years and with the Palm OS I could password protect memos. I've now switched to Outlook and want to password protect notes. Is there anyway to do this other than locking my entire machine?

Do you run XP?

If so, put a password on your account and set XP so your files are private. It's that simple.

What about specific notes

I appreciate the suggestion, but is there anyway to password protect specific notes or the notes section of outlook? Thanks

Not in this design.

Since we passworded the account, and set "make my files private", it's all password protected. One needs the password to get to any note.

I know why you mean on the Palm (I have dozens of them) but you can see that it's not implemented the same on a PC.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
