I created a new Category in Outlook 2013.

Then I created 3 new contacts, each Categorized with the new Category.

I then did a Contact Search, Clicked the Categorized button and the new Category is not available in the list. The list of categories contains 15 entries plus Any and None. There is no option to view all categories.

If I enter category:="categoryname" in the Search box it works just fine.

If I click Tools > Advanced Search and add Category to the search with the value of the new Category it returns the records just fine.

This behavior is markedly different than Categories for email, for example. Is it by design or a bug?

Thanks /Bob
