> A family Linux computer where everybody is doing stuff, but the email program of the user account (owner) be protected by password (or some other way?) against misuse by nasty kids. The whole program needs to be restriced, with all folders, not only downloading mails, so just using the mailbox password is not an option.
> Any ideas how to achieve this ?

Sudo -u mailuser as Ralf said

also you must chmod the claws mail directory and claws executable

then all you have to worry about is a password logger running when you
enter any password.
