Remove a color category from a message

You can remove a color category from a message in a message list, such as the Inbox, or from within the open message.

Removing a color category from a message removes it only from that item; it does not delete the color category from the main color category list. In some views, you can select multiple messages at the same time and remove a color category from them.

Do one of the following:

  • Remove all the color categories from a message

    • Right-click the item that you want, click Categorize on the shortcut menu, and then click Clear All Categories.

  • Remove specific color categories from a message

    1. Right-click the item, click Categorize on the shortcut menu, and then click All Categories.

    2. Clear the check boxes for the color categories that you want to remove.

Tip: To quickly remove a single color category, click the Category column next to the message. If only one color category is assigned to the message, the category is removed. If more than one category is assigned to the message, and you have set a Quick Click category, the Quick Click category is removed.

Notes: 

  • To select multiple messages that are next to each other in the list, click the first message, and then hold down SHIFT while you click the last message.

  • To select multiple messages that are not next to each other, hold down CTRL while you click each of the messages.
