    I previously had all my contacts in Outlook 2003 with categories assigned,
    that I synced w/ my Palm Pilot. Have now transitioned to Outlook 2007 using
    Exchange server. I imported all my old Outlook 2003 contacts into the new
    profile for use with Outlook 2007 w/ Exchange. I now realize that I have
    apparently lost all the categories and assignment of contacts to those
    categories. Is there any way to get that back?

    Importing is never the correct way to move data from one POutlook instance to
    another. Importing always loses data. Just open the PST you used in the old
    version in the new version and copy the data to the Exchange mailbox.
