Public Calendar not updating

We curretnly have multiple Public calendars setup within Exchange on our SBS 2003 server.
Daily service appoinments are entered using the default catagory color code. Once the item has been completed it is manually set to a different catagory color code.

We have 8 workstations accessing the 7 Public calendars. If a user sets an appointment to a new catagory, the change is not seen by the other Outlook users. Each user only sees the appoinments that were changed by them.

This seems to have begun once we upgraded to Outlook 2007.

Categories as personal to the user, not stores within the Information Store. If I assign something to be Blue and give it a customised name that's only good for me. Another person can make the same thing Green for himself and have his own customised name.

The names of the catagories are not so much what I'm worried about. Although each user hs the ability to alter the names, we have standardized as an office what names are to be used per color.
My concern is that within our Public calendars I can change an appointment from the default gray to orange and it does not change the color of the appointment for anyone else. When another user accesses the same Public calendar, the same appointment remains default gray.

Prior to upgrading to Office 2007, all appoinment colors transfered without fail.
