New emails in Outlook 2016 do not let you quickly click on a Categorize drop down but forces you to Tags, and then Message Options - several clicks compared to 1 or 2. Is there any way to make the Categorize drop down show like it does when you reply to an email? It used to in previous versions.

Outlook Categories

by bpunch In reply to Outlook 2016 New Email Ca ...

Outlook Categories let you assign colors to certain messages, so they stand out in your inbox, and so you can quickly group and view all the messages assigned to a category. If for example, you're a tech blogger, you could create a "Potential Story Ideas" category and then tag relevant press releases, pitches or messages from possible sources in that category for easy access in the future.

To use Outlook categories effectively, you must first create a new category or customize an existing one, then assign a category to a message or messages, and finally, you can sort your inbox by Categories to view all tagged messages.
