We have a user who has creater a personal folder in Outlook 2007 which he
wants to either password protect the folder or hide it from view so that
other users who have access to his e-mails cannot access / see the folder.

Does anyone know whether this is possible?

Many thanks for your responses.

An entire personal folders (PST) file can be password protected, but once
s/he starts Outlook with said PST, the contents are available to anyone who
has access to the machine. Best bet at this point is to activate the screen
saver and require a password to unlock it if the user walks away from
workstation.

Provide the password when prompted. To remove the password completely set a
new password but leave the field for the new password blank.
