I have Outlook 2007 and have been using Outlook connector for some time to

sync with my live contacts. Recently I received an updated Outlook

Connector. When I look at my Outlook contacts now (in my live folder) all my

categories have been removed from my contacts.

When I go to LIVE.COM there are a few categories, but they seem to only be

categories where I have an IM contact assigned to a cagegory.

When I assign a category to a contact in Outlook, the category information

is not synced to LIVE, although other changes (such as phone number) are

synched.

What happened to syncing categories with Outlook connector and is there

something I can do to fix it?

Also, does anyone know how to sync contact pictures between Outlook and LIVE?

Not all fields are synced - categories and contact pics are two of the

things that don't sync. Live mail get contact pictures from Windows

messenger or live ID accounts.
