Missing Custom Categories & Colors When Creating a new Profile or new Computer

Outlook 2007 stores the categories into the .pst file as opposed to a previous version of Outlook, which stores in the registry.

Procedure:

1. To build the new Categories/Colors list in Outlook 2007 or import the original Categories/Colors list, right-click the top of the mailbox in the navigation menu (Mailbox - Your Name) and choose Properties.

2. Click the Upgrade to Color Categories…. button. Outlook will then look through the entire mailbox for categories, and it will add them to the categories list when found.

3. These data will be pushed to the Exchange 07 server and will propagate down to other Outlook clients connected to the Exchange 07 server for this user.

Additional Information:

Custom Categories/Colors are displayed in OWA for Exchange 07 in the Contacts tab by clicking the Single Line view icon in the top of OWA. Note: Only available via Internet Explorer.



Custom Categories/Colors are displayed in OWA for Exchange 07 in the Calendar tab for any of the following views: Today, Day, Work Week, Week, Month. Note: Only available via Internet Explorer.
