When you receive a digitally signed message and then click Options on the View menu, the Categories field may be blank, even if the sender selected one or more categories.


This problem occurs because the message was sent by an Outlook client that was installed in a configuration different than your own. For example, you can experience this problem if you are running Microsoft Outlook 98 or Outlook 2000 in Corporate or Workgroup (CW) mode and you receive a digitally signed message from someone who has Outlook 98 or Outlook 2000 configured in Internet Mail Only (IMO) mode. The same problem occurs if the opposite is true.


To resolve this problem, both clients must be running Outlook in the same configuration or the message must be sent without a digital signature.
