No, just no-one's managed to find the time to reply to it yet,

You need to install Python <http://python.org/download>. Then download the
source archive for 1.0rc2 (the zip would be easiest). Unpack the archive
somewhere convenient. Then double-click the addin.py file in the
Outlook2000 directory and the addin should be registered and ready next time
you open Outlook.
(You should uninstall the binary version first. All your configuration and
training will stay the same).
To make the change, edit the file Outlook2000\msgstore.py. The line is
around 859 and will read '''for check in "ipm.note", "ipm.anti-virus":'''
(without the 's) at the moment. Change it to something like '''for check in
"ipm.anti-virus",:''' (without the 's) and that should work.
> Also, why do you "specifically avoid filtering these"?
I don't recall, sorry. Mark must have had some reason, though! Maybe
googling through the archives of this list would shed light? (I don't have
time to look right now, sorry).

Outlook has a whole set of message classes and you can choose to exclude any
of them if you know their name (like "ipm.note"). MSDN probably has a list
of them somewhere.
Please always include the list (spambayes at python.org) in your replies
(reply-all), and please don't send me personal mail about SpamBayes. This
way, you get everyone's help, and avoid a lack of replies when I'm busy.
