Using Outlook 2007 with Exchange 2003, we want everyone on the network to have access to and see the same categories in a public contact folder.  On one computer I created a number of new categories but when I categorized a contact in the public folder, and logged into a second users computer to check the contact, the second user did showthe same categories as the first user but next to the categories it said (not in master categories).

Just so you know, this public contact folder existed when the users were using Outlook 2003.

I would like for all users to ONLY have access to the same categories and for everyone to see when a contact is categorized.

I would like to do this without using a third party program.

Hi, b1dupree.

That's not possible.  In Outlook 2007 there is no longer a master category list.  Categories are specific to each user.  There is no way to share or enforce categories.
