Obviously, Microsoft tries to enhance Outlook with each new release, and
that includes new programming interfaces. The interface that allows us
to integrate directly into Outlook was not added until Outlook 2000.

There is, as long as you are using a POP3 mail account. In addition to
the integrated Outlook plug-in, SpamBayes also has a POP3 proxy that
sits between your mail client and your POP3 server. It isn't as tightly
integrated as the plug-in, but it is just as effective at filtering your
spam. The Web browser-based user interface is pretty easy to use once
you get used to it, and we also welcome feedback on how it could be
Currently, to run the POP3 proxy you'll need to install Python (and
probably the win32all extensions since you are on Windows), then
download and extract the 1.0a7 source archive and run from that. There
are some instructions for setting this up included in the archive.
Alternatively, you can wait a little while until a beta version of our
new binary installer is released, which will include an option to
install the proxy version.
