I want to clear or overwrite the generic master category list & then use the GPO template to push out the categories we want to use.  I know how to clear my own list using a macro but I want to do this globally as we use categories to bill out our time.  Thank you

Categories are stored on a per mailbox basis.  There is no central category list.  You'll need to clear the categories on each profile.  I'm not aware of any way to push categories via a GPO either, although that doesn't mean that there isn't a way to do it.  I did write an article here on EE the details how to create a corporate categories system.  You could give that a shot.

That is what I thought but I wanted to verify that no body came up with a way to do it globally without buying a 3rd party add-in.  We have been pushing out categories through GPOs for years & works great but you still cant overwrite the generic categories.  As a heads you have to load the Microsoft Outlook  ADM template & then it located under User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Classic Administrative Templates > Microsoft Outlook > Miscellaneous > Add New Categories > Enable & add a comma or semicolon delimited list.  The only thing you cant do is set the colors for each categories.  Thanks

Excellent article that I did read previously to adding this question.  He did verify that the only way to clear out the Default Master Category list is to do it on each individual machines.
