Hello,


We recently had to rebuild an Outlook profile for a user.  This is because the Exchange Server was replaced; a new Outlook profile was created for the user.  The PST file was exported out of the former server and reimported into the new one.


User indicates that he had color coded each of the categories in Outlook.  He is now not seeing each of those categories, and his calendar is showing all items with the same color.


Is there any way this can be reimported for him?


Thanks in advance.


Regards,

RealTimer

categories are stores in the local pst file so if this is lost they are lost.

Total pain in the arris that Microsoft choose this method.

Here is a manual backup/restore method for future:
