Password protection of Microsoft Outlook

Posted by Jonh Monday, May 12, 2008 0 comments

Currently there is no way to password protect Outlook on startup or to lock Outlook if you need to quickly walk away from your computer other than by using your Microsoft Windows® logon password or by using third-party software written specifically to password protect Outlook. However, you can set a password on your Personal Folders file (.pst) (Personal Folders file (.pst): Data file that stores your messages and other items on your computer. You can assign a .pst file to be the default delivery location for e-mail messages. You can use a .pst to organize and back up items for safekeeping.). If you use an Internet e-mail account in Outlook, such as a POP3 (POP3: A common protocol that is used to retrieve e-mail messages from an Internet e-mail server.) or HTTP (HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol): Protocol that is used when you access Web pages from the Internet. Outlook uses HTTP as an e-mail protocol.) account, your e-mail messages are delivered to a .pst data file on your computer's local hard disk. You can use a password on your .pst file to help prevent accidental intrusion by other people whom you share your computer with.

  1. On the Go menu, click Folder List.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • If you have a POP3 e-mail account, right-click the Personal Folders folder, and then click Properties For "Personal Folders" on the shortcut menu.
    • If you have an HTTP e-mail account (not supported in Outlook 2000), such as MSN® Hotmail®, right-click the Hotmail folder, and then click Properties For "Hotmail" on the shortcut menu.
  3. On the General tab, click Advanced.
  4. Click Change Password.
  5. In the Change Password dialog box, type your new password and verify it by typing it a second time. The password can be up to 15 characters.

Note Use strong passwords that combine upper- and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols. Weak passwords don't mix these elements. Strong password: Y6dh!et5. Weak password: House27. Use a strong password that you can remember so that you don't have to write it down.

  1. Make sure that the Save this password in your password list check box is cleared. This prevents the password from being cached, and you need to type the password each time you run Outlook. Don't forget the password.
  2. Click OK three times.

When you click the e-mail account folder, you will be prompted for your password. After you gain access, you won't have to enter the password again for that session. If you exit and then restart Microsoft Outlook, you will be prompted for the password when you click the e-mail account folder.

Important The .pst password feature is not intended to provide security against hackers. It is just a way to prevent inadvertent intrusion by other people whom you trust and share your computer with, such as at home with your family. A more secure way of protecting your data on a computer that you share with other people is to create a password-protected Windows user account for each individual using the computer Help

Outlook Mail Attachment security

Posted by Jonh Thursday, May 8, 2008 0 comments

To prevent the spread of viruses from program files (considered a Level 1 threat), Microsoft Outlook automatically blocks attachments that contain file types that can run programs. These blocked file types include .exe, .bat, .com, .vbs, and .js. Your Inbox displays the paperclip icon in the Attachment column to let you know that the message has an attachment. A list of the blocked attachment files appears in the InfoBar at the top of the message.

If you try to send an attachment that has a file type extension that is on the Level 1 restricted list, you receive a message that other Outlook users may not be able to access this type of attachment.

Only an e-mail server administrator can change this default setting and unblock certain file types. This setting is often used on an organization's intranet, not on the Internet.

Data files, such as .doc, .xls, .ppt, and .txt files, are not blocked. However, you receive an Opening Mail Attachment message when you try to open an attachment.

This message gives you the opportunity to consider the safety of the file you are opening and a chance to save the file and scan it for viruses before opening it.

To be able to send any file type by using e-mail, you can use a third-party program, such as WinZip, to package files before you attach them to your e-mail message. WinZip can create a new Outlook message and attach the .zip package for you.

In your message, you can include instructions explaining how to extract the files from the package to make it easy for recipients to access the files.

Microsoft Outlook Address Book Security

Posted by Jonh Sunday, May 4, 2008 0 comments

The Microsoft Outlook Address Book is guarded programmatically. This helps to prevent another program from automatically accessing your Address Book or Contacts list or from sending messages on your behalf without your permission. It is very useful to allow some programs (like Microsoft ActiveSync® or Palm Desktop Support and Computer Support )to access your contact information so that you can synchronize your personal digital assistant (PDA). However, a virus or other malicious program file can use the same functionality to propagate itself. If a program attempts to access your Address Book, a warning appears on screen.

This message appears if a program tries to access your Address Book. In general, you cannot prevent this caution from appearing. However, check with your synchronization software vendor to see if recent updates to the vendor's software include interacting with Outlook in a trusted manner. This message is not displayed when Outlook interacts with trusted synchronization software

· Unless you clicked a command or started a program that is expected to interact with Outlook Address Book information or if you are just not sure, click No.

· If you clicked a command or started a program that is expected to interact with Outlook Address Book information, select the Allow access for check box, and then specify the amount of time you grant access for.
