Outlook categories dissappear

eloya says:

Hi RTM team,

I'm referreing to this entry, which is closed:

http://www.rememberthemilk.com/forums/milksync/13619/ . I and some of my colleagues do have the same problem with MilkSync for Outlook. We regularely loose our Outlook color categories.

I suppose MilkSync is responsible for this error because it's the only Plug-In which queries and uses categories in Outlook.

Can you please look into this issue? This is quite a severe bug for us and we did not notice this before.

Kind regards,

Nico

Hi RTM,

MilkSync has removed all my assigned Color Categories and replaced with the Remember the Milk tags. As said before this is a huge issue if people are using this extensively! Please fix!

What's the expected behavior between Outlook Categories and RTM Tags/Lists? I was surprised to not find that documented on the Features page for this App and I'd like to know what's going to happen to my Outlook Categories before I perform my first sync.

Hi myidiym,
MilkSync uses Outlook categories to map both lists and tags in Remember The Milk. Any category that begins with the # character is considered to be a tag, while any other category is considered to be a list. This is explained a bit more in the MilkSync for Outlook FAQ.

Hope this helps!

Same here! Ran MilkSync once with Outlook on exchange online server. It removed all Categories and colors and replaced it with the purple inbox category. I've uninstalled MilkSync and I still can't change to a different category color?

This is a HUGE problem for our us. Please Post a fix.

Brendan,
This seems like an issue a lot of us are experiencing. Any chance that a fix is available for all of us (other than troubleshooting one user at a time)?

Hi jpumar,
Sorry but we're still trying to gather as much detail as we can on this issue. For each case, there are a few different factors we need to review which is why we ask that each user contact us by email.

Please get in touch if you've run into this issue as well.
