    Hi, Ive been trying to get Windows Live Mail to prompt me to type in a password to open the program. It's just stupid that one cant password protect a program that can show your whole life in it to just anyone that clicks on the desktop icon.:eek:

    Something sorta just like the "insecure" outlook express would allow you to do...and even do it individually for each "identity" to require a password...but now identities are long gone for what ever retarded reason....way to go again MS..

    With the new Windows Live Mail desktop application, when you run it, it will pop up a box to sign in to Windows Live, if you press cancel, it will still take you to your mail and allow you to view my messages. I know I can uncheck 'Remember my password' in Accounts>Properties, but that only stops it from sending/recieving new messages only, I can still view old messages.

    Is there a way to prevent WLMail from loading without prompt for a password first?

    Any and all help is greatly appreciated. :)
