I need to assign the category colour Orange (renamed "Follow Up") to quite a number of emails I send out. At the moment I click Tags > Categories > and select the colour. Is there a way to create a short cut to assign this category, just before sending it out?
My preferred solution if possible is a button in the ribbon to click to assign this before I send it out. But if not possible, other solutions are also OK e.g. keyboard shortcut.
Note that I have tried setting the shortcut key in Outlook under Color Categories (Ctrl-F2), but this didn't seem to work when composing email. It works when I want to tag emails in a folder, but that's not what I need.
