Losing label colors in Outlook Calendar with ActiveSync

When I sync my Dell Axim with Outlook 2003 at my office and then sync with my PC at home, I lose the label colors for my appointments.  Anyone know how to get ActiveSync to retain these?

Same OS at both places?  ActivSync stinks and is not reliable...I use it too!  I uninstalled and recreated the sync both at home and work.

Greetings, msibley.

Does ActiveSync support label colors at all?  Sorry, I don't have a Windows Mobile PDA so I don't know the answer.  My experience with Palm PDAs though is that the mail client on teh PDA doesn't support all of Outlook's features.

BlueDevilFan is right!  I have an iPAQ and mine does the smae thing.  I assumed it doesn't have that capability.  Maybe I'm wrong, but never really worried about it.
