I posted this a long time ago but now I can't find the old post. But I'm leaving on vacation in a couple of weeks and I want to set the password on my emac so that the housesitter cannot access my computer. We had problems with the last housesitter and I don't want a repeat.
I have am eMac OSX 10.2.4 desktop.

I have an eMac 10.2. Is it possible to password only certain items like email account, and safari but leaving Explorer open for someone to use?
