There is no way to protect the data store of an Exchange account as you can for pst-file. The Exchange data store is an ost-file and doesn’t hold the ability to password protect it. Always prompt for credentials in outlook 2013, outlook 2016 or outlook 2010.

To set the option to always prompt for logon credentials, click on the More Settings… button in while still in your Exchange account settings and select the Security tab.

Follow the below steps:

– Open outlook 2010/ outlook 2013 or outlook 2016. Then click on file options and select Account setting from the right side.
