To remove a category assignment, select the item, click the Categorize
button, and choose Clear All Categories.
Another way to quickly categorize an e-mail message is to click the Category
column of the message in a mail folder window. To tell Outlook which
category to assign when you click the Category column, click the Categorize
button and choose Set Quick Click. You see the Set Quick Click dialog box.
Choose the category on the drop-down list that you want to assign by
”quick-clicking” in the Category column.
Arranging items by category in folders
To arrange items by category in a folder, select the folder in the Folder pane
and use one of these techniques:
On the View tab, choose Categories in the Arrangement gallery.
In a list, click the Categories column heading to sort items by category.
You can also click the Categorized button on the (Search Tools) Search tab
to organize the results of a search by category.
Searching for Stray Folder Items
If you can’t locate an item in a folder by scrolling, changing views, or any
other means, run a search. To start a search, go to the folder you want to
search and click in the Search box (or press Ctrl+E). You can find the Search
box below the Ribbon. As soon as you click in the Search box, Outlook opens
the (Search Tools) Search tab so that you can describe what you’re seeking,
as shown in Figure 1-3.
