Before you organize your contacts into categories, you need to define your different categories. Outlook creates default categories that are color-coded and named Blue Category or Red Category, but you'll need to customize these categories for your own use.
To create your own categories, follow these steps:
1. Choose Go Contacts.
2. Click a contact.
3. Choose ActionsOCategorize.
A menu appears, as shown in Figure 14-5.
The Categorize menu lists all your current categories.
4. Choose All Categories.
The Color Categories dialog box appears, as shown in Figure 14-6.
The Color Categories dialog box lets you rename your category names.
5. Click a category (such as Blue Category) and then click the Rename button.
Outlook highlights the category name.
6. Type a new name for your category, such as Friends or Customers, and then press Enter.
7. Repeat Steps 5 and 6 for each category you want to rename.
8. Click OK.
