Windows Mail Inbox Visibility

I was just wondering if someone knew how to, if possible, keep the inbox of
the Windows Mail account private? What's the point in having private email
accounts if they are visible to everyone. When I click on the short-cut icon
on the desktop, I immediately get the logon window, that eclipses the
connection-error message window that eclipses the inbox window. All anyone
has to do is just drag the windows apart evern before I logon and there
received messages lay. What if anything can I do???

Hi Lenny,

You can setup a different Vista user account and password protect the one for your email. That way one must log into your user account to open Windows Mail.

Why are you permitting multiple users of the same machine to
share one Windows login? Create another Windows user account,
then when you are done using the computer, use the 'switch user'
feature to log out of your Windows profile.
