When migrating from Outlook 2003 to 2010 I’m finding the emails I labeled with categories in 2003 are not showing categories in 2010.  It would take me many hours to label each email again.  Is there a way to have Outlook 2010 recognize and keep the category I’ve already assigned for each email?

jcimarron,

Thanks for your response.  I tried the suggestions on both the links you sent, but found they didn't solve me problem.  I found the answer at http://blog.nektra.com/main/2010/05/21/how-to-migrate-nk2-auto-complete-%E2%

jcimarron,

Thanks for pointing out the incomplete link.  After a lot of monkeying around with the Normal.dotm and NormalEmail.dotm files, I finally have the Autotext and Building Blocks working in Word.  Unfortunately, although muy Autotext entries are available in Outlook, the Building Blocks feature isn't.  This means instead opening Autotext (like with 2003) and simply typing a few letters to find the entry, I know have to scroll to find it.  Since I have about 50 to 60 entries, this is a pain.

Any ideas on this?
