Creating a multi-select List box on an Outlook Form?

I am creating a basic Outlook Form for when users want to submit an IT Request.

On the form I want to have a field called Category. Within this field I list several types of categories and I want to allow the user to select multiple categories if they want. so e.g.

Category: Outlook

I have provided an attached image as well. The form is not linked to a database, I don't intend to either. The problem is, when you select any entry within this listbox, none of them stay selected when the form is received at the recipient mailbox. how can I get the listbox to retain the user's cursor selection(s)?

You don't say what version of Outlook you are running, or which standard form is the basis for your custom form.  Different fields (and controls) are available, depending on the original form.

Thanks for your suggestions Helen. At this stage I haven't had time to work on the forms but I'll give your solutions a try when I do!!
