Outlook 2016 is connected to my Gmail account (IMAP/SMTP) for home use and the Calendar is stored on my local computer. I would like to use the Outlook Calendar to mark display appointments in a specified color based on category. However, I'm missing the Color Categories option in the Appointment toolbar.

 

I've checked the following:

* Color Categeries is missing in the toolbar (as well as right click on appointment item)

* I'm using a local calendar created by Outlook 2016: "Calendar (This Computer Only)

 

Eventhough I did not migrate the Outlook Mailbox, I did try:

* Not seeing "Upgrade to Color Categories" in the Mailbox Settings

* I've ran the command: "OUTLOOK.EXE /remigratecategories"
