Outlook 2010 send a meeting request with color category and recipient see's the category

I know there is a way to share categories, but I have a request for people who are sharing categories to be able to send meeting invites and the category already be in place for the person accepting the invite.

Ex:  create new meeting with category '123' send it to Joe.  Joe accepts meeting and when he accepts it goes into his caledar as category '123' automatically.

Can this be done?  We are using outlook 2010, and i've used the macros from other threads to export/import categories so they have the same set.

Outlook 2010 has a default rule that strips categories off of inbound items.  Open rules and disable or delete that rule.

Interesting, i just deleted that rule and did a test calendar invite with a category that is the same between the both and it didn't work.  But that seems to be in the right direction, I will continue to test with it.  Maybe im missing something else?

It didn't work as in the category doesn't show up or the category color doesn't show up?

Category and color both dont show up.  As if it were never set from the orginator with a category on it.  I deleted the rule from both my test clients.

For exchange 2007/2010 you have to run this command at the shell:

Get-transportConfig |FL*categories
 
If you see the result: ”categories: True”, it means now the Exchange server will automatically remove categories.
 
 
 
Run this command to allow transport categories.
 
Set-transportConfig-ClearCategories: $False
