    Is there any way to make Mail sort certain incoming emails into folders that are password protected? Maybe a third party app?

    What I am trying to do is keep certain email's from being accessed when I am not at my desk at work.

    Thanks in advance.

    hmm i know you can color code them and i think you can make them go into a different folder but i am not sure you will be able to mak ethem not show up in you inbox screen the way you want it...using a password so that people can t go in your computer period is not an option herE?

    unfortunately not. other people need access to other emails and programs.

    There is no shortcut to Glory. Do not enable automatic login. Logout when you step away from your computer.

    Well, along the lines of MisterMe's idea... In the Security pane of System Preferences you can enable a password requirement for wake from sleep or screensaver. Then, you can enable a hot corner for your screensaver. This should make it nice and easy to prevent others form seeing your email when you're not at the machine. :)
