Why are Outlook 2007 categories not being sent back on email replies?

I set a category for a mail message before I send it. When the person replies, that category is no longer assigned to the mail message.

"Outlook 2007 includes a default client-only rule called ""Clear categories on mail"" which is applied to inbound mail. If your recipients are also running Outlook 2007, they will never see your outbound categories after their Outlook filters them on the inbound side.

EDIT: There are two rules in my installation, one for client-only (.pst) and one labeled without the ""client-only"" tag, presumably for IMAPI accounts.
