When I open up outlook, it brings up all of my emails that I have read, it
does not update any new e-mails untill I type in my password which comes up
right away upon opening outlook. If I hit the cancel button for my password,
my old e-mails still stay there for any one to look at. Any one can come to
my computer and open up outlook and see every old e-mail.
Thanks

That is the case when using Exchange in cached mode. Note that the password
prompt is for the server and not the client.

Anyone coming to your computer can also get all the documents you have
access to and use all other applications and database access you have.
Therefor you should always either lock your computer or logoff when you are
away from your desk.
