  • Hi Geert,

    >>  is it possible to see who from those 8 people gave a category to a mail?

    I am afraid it it not feasible to see which user applies a category to a message in Outlook. Given this situation, it is encouraged to submit your idea to the Outlook UserVoice forum

    >> I can give one categories name, let us say "important" one collor green, why can i not make another category name "important" with red?

    This is by design that we cannot apply a same name to different color categories. I am assuming that this is in order to avoid confusion as Color categories are designed to help quickly track and organize items by "color". If you still want to use one name for multiple categories, personally I'd like to suggest using similar words to bypass this limitation. For example, you can name "Important" with green and "important" with red. 

    Hope this is clear and helpful.

    Regards,
