We are using Exchange on a SBS server and our users are trying to rename the colour labels on the calendar of outlook. However if they change them as soon as they log of they are changed back to default. Is there any way we could either change these centrally for all users or make the changes stick on the users accounts?

The text for the labels are stored in an undocumented property in the owning calendar folder.  Each calendar folder can have its own label definitions.  I don't know why the changes wouldn't be sticking.  As a test try changing the label text for a calendar in a PST file.  If that works, then I have to assume it's something to do with a calendar on an SBS system.  If that does not work, then I have to assume it's something wrong with Outlook.  I've never heard of this happening before, so I don't know how to proceed if that turns out to be the problem.

It is the public calendar, in public folders, not the users' personal calendars. Does that help?
thanks

Hi, David.

Unfortunately that doesn't make any difference.  The label is still stored in a folder property.

Hi rutlandict,

Only the own of the public folder can change the label colors. You would have to give ownership to everyone.

cheers,
