Good morning,

I am trying to enable Outlook 2007 users on an Exchange 2007 server to send each other outlook items and retain the categories the sender has assigned to the items.

I have done the following:

1) There are no rules in outlook Rules and Alerts to strip categories from messages.  In fact, I deleted all my rules.  If I try to export, it tells me there are no rules to export.

2) Registry entries have been made for the following:

Value Name: SendPersonalCategories
Value Type: DWORD
Value Data: 1

Value Name: AcceptCategories
Value Type: DWORD
Value Data: 1

I tried creating the registry entries manually.  I tried creating the registry entries via a GPO from the DC.  No difference.

3) I ran the following at the Exchange 2007 Management Shell prompt:

Set-TransportConfig ClearCategories: $False

If anyone has this working, can you tell me if the category remains when you send yourself an email with a category assigned to it?

Categories I believe is a client side feature of Outlook and not of Exchange.
I guess you can look into these 2 links, to import/export master category lists.
