I know technically there is no way in Outlook to password protect folders. However, I was wondering if someone knew a workaround where folders within Outlook could be protected by a password?

Personal Folders files can be password protected. Have you looked into them instead of exchange side folders?

Thank you for your response

Have you looked into them instead of exchange side folders?
What exactly do you mean?

I was hoping to password protect some of the folders I created within Outlook.

Typically when outlook is setup the data is help on the exchange folder instead of locally on your hard drive. You can however create archive/pst/outlook data file/personal folders files. People use all of those names for the database files. These files can then be password protected.
