8700c Redirector Password & Outlook
I have an 8700c and am using Windows XP with Outlook 2002. Currently I am not on any type of Server or Exhange system. I simply use the Desktop Redirector to forward all e-mails from my Outlook Inbox to my blackberry.
Currently when I re-start my computer, I am prompted by the Desktop Manager for my Outlook password. When I enter the password, everything runs smoothly. But when I close Outlook and re-open it, it opens automatically without prompting me for a password.
Is there a way to have Outlook prompt for a password while using the Desktop Redirector? When I leave my office for the day and close Outlook, I don't want anybody to be able to just open Outlook and read my e-mail. But I also want to continue to receive e-mail on my BB while I am gone for the day and Outlook is closed.
Re: 8700c Redirector Password & Outlook
The outlook service is still running in the background due to the redirector, so it maintains your login information including your password. What I would suggest it passwording your screensaver or do a CTRL-ALT-DEL on your PC and chose the LOCK COMPUTER button. Hope this helps
