Multiple Categories

Do you use MS Outlook 2007’s category colors?

If you do, you’re probably like me and you have quite a few different categories, each with its own color code.

Still, I’m sure there are times when you wish you could combine two categories together for a single message, without defining yet another new one that’s just simply a hybrid of what you already have.

Seems like a waste of time, doesn’t it?

Yeah, I thought so too. So, as you can imagine, I was very happy to learn I could assign multiple categories to the same message. And you can too!

All you have to do is right click over the category section of the message listing.

The category list will then open, allowing you to pick an additional category.

You’ll find that Outlook puts two category rectangles where there used to be only one.

In fact, if you repeat the process, you can continue adding categories.

So, no more creating new categories just for the sake of combining the ones that already exist. With multiple category labeling, you can mix and match them to your heart’s content!
