I am using outlook 2010 and very happy with how my incoming emails are categorized with the exception that many emails also have the category "Starred in Android". This is almost always on top of one of my existing categories. I see no rule that add this. I tried stopping my phone from syncing email but that had no effect. I do have a gmail account where some emails get "starred" but I don't see how that could be affecting this.

It would be great to get even a suggestion on how to fix this.

Well, i thought i had looked through my rules for this, but i had missed it. I dont know when or why but it appears i put it in a rule myself.

Oh really? Well, actually, I guess that would be it - because Starred messages should be filed in a folder called Starred, not categorized.
