Outlook Categories and Public Folders

I have a client that has a shared calendar that is setup in somebody's account and then shared.  It is an Outlook 2007 Client(as are the rest of the clients).  The person that created the calendar created custom colored categories for the calendar.  I need to move this calendar into the public folder because this person is leaving the company(also, this would of been a better setup to begin with) and also because I want the calendar to be available to a wider range of users.  The problem is that when I move the calendar into the public folder, unless I'm logged on as that person I don't get the custom categories and colors.  How do I go about storing all of the categories in the public folder structure.(exchange 2007)?

Thanks
Mark

Hi, Rich_Clark.

That's not possible.  Category colors are stored on a per-user basis.  There is no concept of public folder category colors.  You'd have to get each user to create the same categories and colors for everyone to see them in the same colors.

Can you export them out and import them in to other users?

Yes.  You can also create a corporate categories system.  Here are two articles I wrote on how to do this.  The first article shows how to export/import categories.  The second article shows hot create a corporate categories system.

Please excuse the typo in the last sentence.  It should read "... how to create ..." not "... hot create ...".
