Allow editing of local categories
The default local categories in Outlook for Mac 2016 are unable to be seen, let alone edited, in the Edit Categories window. Please give us the ability to edit/delete local categories for use with Outlook items stored locally "on my computer".
I should add to my prior comment that the OLM option is less practical as it involved 'exporting' and re-importing, as oppossed to just keeping multiple identities for archive purposes. which can be accessed faster.
Further to bringing back categories at local 'on my computer' level, please also consider exposing the identities in a less hidden way to the users again. They are useful if you keep a lot of legacy and do not necessarily want to store all that online in the cloud. Alternatively, bring back the PST’s, which were last fully enabled in the 2001 version of Outlook.
This also renders smart folders almost useless if you have a bunch of emails with local categories only. It'd be nice to at least have some guidance on how to remove them manually via command line.
Can't be searched for either!
