I have a user that is trying to setup the coloring of e-mail by who it is from (Like in Outlook 2003 under Organize) now called conditional formatting.  Every time he sets it up some conditions, "OK's" out of the dialog window, goes to check out the Inbox or Calendar, them goes back to check on the view conditions he inputted, they are all gone.

Any idea on what could be making fail to save to get reset?

This will probably help you:

After creating the Conditional Formatting rules, copy the view. This way you won't lose formatting if the view gets reset - just change views.

Now... as to why your view is getting reset, it's probably because you customized "Current View" instead of a named view. The current view is what we call "one-offed" and works in the current folder only. These views are more esily reset than customizing a view by name or creating a custom view.

As an added note, to modify or create a new view in Outlook 2010, click on View -> Change View -> Manage Views...
