I couldn't access my email at one point, because the online AOL wasn't working, so I turned to Outlook. Now, everytime it's opened it's on my email. Anyone can just open Outlook and view everything of mine, even send mail. Is there any way to "sign off" Outlook and not have it go directly to my AOL account?

I have Outlook 2007.

Do you mean everyone at home who uses the same computer?

If so you need to set an identity or account for your email in Outlook and require a password to open your mail.

Ya, everyone who uses this computer, and this is the main computer. I don't want to set a password, I want to shut it down!

You have two options.
1. look in the configuration and tell it to always check for a password. This would be our AOL email password this when out look is opened a password will need to be entered for that person to gain access to the computer.

2. remove the email account from outlook, this means that if you ever want to get your emails through out look again you would have to do all the set up again. See here.

Just as an aside if you have multiple people accessing the one home PC it is worthwhile setting up separate user profiles for each user. This would help avoid problems such as this one and is also good for preventing people accidentally changing other peoples work.
