In previous versions of Outlook I could use the "Organize" feature to change

the color of inbox mail. For example, I could say that mail with only me on

the To line would be red, mail from my boss blue, etc. In 2010 I can't find

this feature. I've tried to use Categories to compensate but it doesn't

automatically work on incoming mail and I don't see how to use Rules to

associate incoming mail actions with a cateogory. I'd really like that

Organize feature back! Anyone know how to do it?

The Organize feature was nothing more than a combination of features that

were available otherwise in Outlook as well. The feature you were actually

using was Conditional Formatting and is a View setting.

Switch to the View tab and press View Settings.

For more info on how to use Conditional Formatting (called Automatic

Formatting in previous versions of Outlook) see;
