Outlook 2003, Exchange 2003, Server 2003.

Admin to the VP has delegate authority for him and has task editor authority.  When creating a task for him, only her categories are show, not his.  She need to be able to see and assign his categories.

Any suggestions.

Hi, tglaze.

That's not possible.  Categorize are specific to the user.  In 2003 they are entries that are stored in the registry.  The only way for her to see his categories is to sign on as him on his computer.  The alternative is for her to have the same categories that he has, i.e. add his list of categories to hers.

Do you know if this is also the case for Outlook 2007 ?  
Would Exchange 2007 change anything?

Outlook 2007 stores categories in a hidden folder instead of in the registry, but they are still specific to the user.  I don't have any experience with Exchange 2007, but don't believe it makes any difference.  Categories are part fo the client (Outlook) not the server (Exchange).
