Windows 10 Mail app not asking for passwords

I use the Mail app built into Window 10. If I change my Outlook / MS Account password, why does the Mail app continue to send and receive e-mails without prompting for the new password?

If I use the desktop version of Outlook (MS Office 365 Version) it does prompt for a password.

it concerns me that if my PC got stolen and somebody logged into my account, even though I would have changed my e-mail password, they could still get access to my e-mail.

Any ideas anybody please :-)

The mail app will only work if you log in to the PC/Laptop using your Microsoft's account. If you change your password then to log in to the PC you will need to use the new password.
