Hi,

We have a laptop with Outlook 2010 RTM installed on it. The messages delivered into a pst file. When we use categories (sotred in the pst file) with contacts,calendar etc. everything works normally except for the new mails. We realized that when we create a new email message the categories in the list come fom the mailbox category list (on the exchange server) not from the pst.
Is it possibel that we have to maintain 2 lists of categories? The problem was not found in the beta version of Outlook 2010.

You only have two command line switches which affect categories.  One simply clears out customs completely and resets to default.  I am assuming you want to avoid this.  The other is a category migration tool:

/remigratecategories                
Starts Outlook and starts the following commands on the default mailbox:         Upgrades colored For Follow Up flags to Outlook 2010 color categories.
Upgrades calendar labels to Outlook 2010 color categories.
Adds all categories used on non-mail items into the Master Category List
         
 Note    This is the same command as Upgrade to Color Categories in each Outlook mailbox properties dialog box.
