    Where are Categories stored? (2000, SR1, Internet Only)

    Time to reformat, so copied the Outlook.pst to another workstation, but my many customized categories are not there. Are they in another file in another place?!?

    You can export the registry key, then import it back in after the reformat. In regedit, go to:
    hkey_current_usersoftwareMicrosoftoffice9.0outlook categories

    Select the MasterList subkey

    Registry menu, Export Registry File, and give it a name.

    On the new system, just double click the files to add it in.
