I am using Outlook 2013 desktop application and sometimes the Outlook 2013 WebApp.

I want to password protect the email sending option so that if anyone tries to send an email using my email account, a password will be prompted to verify whether it's me.

I have tried changing the Mail settings by going to Control Panel > Mail > E-Mail Accounts > Double click on the account name > More Settings > Security > And ticked the Always prompt for logon credentials. But it doesn't seem to work.

How can i set outlook settings to prompt a password when sending an email? Is this a possible thing to do with Outlook 2013?

Just configure OUtlook NOT to safe your password. By doing this you will have to enter your information each time you want to send and recieve email. –  Ramhound Jul 31 '14 at 11:08
Lock your computer when you're away from the keyboard. –  Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Jul 31 '14 at 15:07
