I recently upgraded to Windows 7 (from XP) and to Outlook 2007 (from Outlook 2003).
I want to use the same categories I had for my calendar entries. category names are stored with each event, so they are potentially available. However every time I start Outlook I have to reload them, by right clicking the root folder containing the calendar, selecting Properties…, Then selecting "upgrade to color categories". At this point, my full list of categories will be visible, with their associated colors. The next time I start Outlook however, I have to go through the same sequence. is there any way to get Outlook to remember my categories from one session to the next.
two additional pieces of information that may be relevant: 1) I have approximately 8 PST files open at a given time, most of them containing archived e-mails 2) although I have more than one calendar among the various PST files, I'm using the default calendar (the one that is in my principal PST file) to compile calendar events from various sources. It is this Calendar that I want to remember my Color Categories.
Thanks for any suggestions.
