P.I. Protector software from imagine LAN provides an easy way for students to carry and access their Microsoft Outlook email on a portable USB flash drive

imagine LAN, Inc., a leading provider of software applications for flash drives to vendors, corporate customers and individual users, has developed a unique software application that enables students (and other highly mobile individuals) to port their Outlook® or Outlook Express email, account settings, contacts, etc. to a standard USB flash drive that can be accessed from virtually any Windows PC – anywhere.    

P.I. Protector Mobility Suite is a perfect match for students for whom the use of multiple PCs at various locations (home, dorm, lab, library, etc.) is the norm. By pairing the inexpensive P.I. Protector software with a standard USB flash drive, students can use the flash drive as the central repository for their Outlook or Outlook Express email. They can easily carry the flash drive with them for use on any PC, where they can send and receive messages, manage their email, contacts, calendar, and access all their folders, messages and attachments - regardless of their location.

For many students, identity theft has become a major concern. P.I. Protector’s advanced “leave no trace” technology ensures that no traces of the user’s email or Internet Explorer activities are left behind on the host PC. Instead, P.I. Protector redirects email and internet browsing data to the USB flash drive. This eliminates the need to erase or “wash” data from the host system when the student’s session has been completed.

“As a busy student with a heavy course load” explains Natalie Sehovich, a marketing major at Merrimack College, “I’ve found P.I. Protector’s portable Outlook to be a huge convenience for me. I don’t have to lug my notebook everywhere just to have access to my email, and I’m comfortable knowing my private information won’t get left behind when I use a friend’s computer or a public terminal.”

P.I. Protector Mobility Suite enables users to create a portable PC environment—one in which a USB flash drive loaded with the appropriate software can turn any PC into their own “virtual system.” With this method, a user can plug their flash drive into any Windows PC and operate the host PC as if it were their own, by accessing their entire personal computing environment—files, email, Internet, and other settings from the flash drive, with full security and protection of their personal information. All data throughout the entire session that would normally be stored on the hard drive—such as email messages, files, cookies, passwords, URLs, etc.—is redirected to the USB flash drive, which prevents any information from reaching the hard drive of the system being used. Additionally, file synchronization enables users to update files between the flash drive and their PC, and it does not require installation or additional set up on the host computer.

Availability, Pricing and Requirements

P.I. Protector Mobility Suite supports Windows XP/2000/ME/98SE. In order to run portable Outlook, Outlook 2000 (C/W), 2002, or 2003 must be installed on the host computer. P.I. Protector requires a USB flash drive or other USB-based portable storage device (purchased separately) with a minimum 16MB of available space. P.I. Protector Mobility Suite costs $30 dollars (U.S.) per device license (for software download) or $40 for the program on CD. Software can be purchased online at or by calling the company at (800) 372-9776. Contact Jan Olsen at or (603) 889-5889 to arrange for a briefing or to obtain evaluation software.
