I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi, interc3905.

Those are statements.  What's the question?
interc3905Author Commented:
Can 2007 be configured to provide this?
David LeeCommented:
There is no such thing as a "category flag" in Outlook 2007.  Categories have colors, but they aren't flags.  Flags are used to mark an item for follow-up and they do not have different colors.  Categories and flags are too separate and distinct things in 2007.  The former is lump like items together, while the latter is to keep track of items that need attention.  The behavior cannot be changed.

Outlook can have multiple categories assigned, but, as noted above, categories are not flags.  The category column in a view can be repositioned.  The flags column cannot be repositioned.
