Experts,

I am trying to add the color category to my messages in Outlook 2010. I am running Windows 7.
I looked on the help menu and I see the instructions on how to add it.

My problem:  I don't have "Categorize" options.

I can not see the following:

For a message in your Inbox or any message list  Right-click the message, point to Categorize , and then click a color category.

For an open message  On the Message tab, in the Options group, click Categorize , and then click a color category.

Okay, I noticed the same thing, if the message is in an IMAP folder, it will not allow you to categorize them. If you move/copy it to your 'Personal Folders', then the categorize option becomes available from the right click menu.
