Outlook 2003 running with Office 2007 on XP Home SP2

Recently, when deleting some email rules, a new rule mysteriously appeared
with the name "Clear categories on mail (recommended)". I cannot delete this
new rule and I don't understand what it means or what to do about it. Any
help would be appreciated. Thanks.

That's a new Rule that seems to be on by default in 2007. What it does is
remove Categories from incoming emails. So if a sender has Categorised an
email they send you, it strips the Category from it.

But it's possible to disable the rule, isn't it?

When I "upgraded" by uninstalling OL07 (after 2 days of problems) and reinstalled OL03, I had the same problem. This fix in OL03 worked for me:

1. Back up your rules and alerts (Tools - Rules and Alerts... - E-mail Rules - Options - Export Rules... {save it with a name in a place you will remember})

2. Close Outlook

3. Run "outlook /cleanrules" (start - Run... and type "outlook /cleanrules" {not the quotes} and click "Ok")

4. OL03 will open as usual, but all rules will be gone. Import the rules you saved in step 1 (Tools - Rules and Alerts... - E-Mail Rules - Options - Import Rules... {using the file you saved in step 1})

5. Go to "Rules and Alerts..." and you will still see the rule "Clear categories on mail (recommended)", but now you'll be able to delete it.
