How do I set up Thunderbird so that a password is required to access new mails please?

To password-protect your e-mail account information in Portable Thunderbird, select Tools, Options, click the Advanced icon, expand the Saved Passwords section, and click Master Password. In the next dialog box, check Use a master password to encrypt stored passwords and then click Change Password. Enter your password in the provided fields and click OK twice, good luck..

I did that but it still seems to download e-mails without asking for a password. Sorry if I'm being a bit thick.

The master password is meant to protect your stored passwords, not your profile. If you configure one it will prompt the user for a master password when they run Thunderbird.

but it doesn't for some reason!

Thunderbird simply loads and downloads messages which can be read by anyone.

I have three e mail addresses in Outlokk all with the same password.

When I set up Thunderbird, it keeps asking for a password for the other two but will not accept this password.

I have tried the master password set up but this does not seem to help.

Any ideas please?
