I recently upgraded a client in my organization from Office 2007 to 2010. She uses categories extensively with her contacts as she has several hundred contacts. In Outlook 2007, her business card view colored each contact relative to their category color. I cannot find a way to make Outlook 2010 do this. Is it possible to get business card view in Outlook 2010 to color the cards based on category?
