How do I share a category list in in Outlook 2007?
It used to be easy with exporting a registry key and installing it on all computers.
Thanks.

Yea, its stored in the mailbox or pst by default now. You could use group policy and push out something consistent, but this article might be prove interesting. I havent tried it myself, but its worth taking a look at.

Hi, b1dupree.

As malware mentioned you can push out category names using group policies (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc179073.aspx), but you cannot push out the colors, nor enforce use of categories.  If you want a consistent set of categories, including the use of colors, then I can provide scripts for exporting/importing a set of categories.  That'd give everyone a consistent set to start with, but of course anyone could change them at any time.
