Its under the first menu, that I do know... its the same place where you can setup new users.
try the help files

Tools > Options > Security and then the second box from the bottom is for encryption.

Set up the account so that you need to enter a password each time the mail is checked.

File / Identities / Manage Identities, click on Properties, then tick the 'Require a password' box in the new 'Identity properties' window, this will open a new 'Enter password' window. Add new password, confirm it then OK all the windows to close.

File/identities/manage identities/properties/require password this will give limited protection, not sure how much as I don't use Outlook Express.
