    Does anybody know how to restrict or password protect outgoing emails?

    I have several email accounts on my mail program. One of my accounts is a bit secretive and I do not want any mail going out unless I am prompted with a password, etc.. or if their is a way to prevent all emails from going out all together on that one account.

    I sometimes get busy, and when replying to an email, may accidentally bring up the wrong email account for that one customer.

    I know I can shut down the entire account on my mail program, and just manually go to www.mac.com, but I still need to know when incoming mail is arriving on that one account.

    Thanks
    Robin

    Put in a bogus outgoing SMTP source for that account and then when you try to send from it, it'll prompt you to choose an SMTP server that actually works.
