Moved from exchange 2000 to SBS2007.  Users now complain that the categories setup in the old calendar are now lost.  Any way to reset?

    I will check but the user was already using Outlook 2007.  The problem arose after I joined the computer to a new SBS2008 server.  He was on a Windows 2000 server running Exchange 2000.

    Outlook 2007 stores the categories in the PST file/mailbox.  If you moved to a new email server, what method was used to move the mail from the old server to the new server?  Have you tried starting outlook with the /remigratecategories switch?
