That favors the guess that nothing bad happens -- people are far more likely
to post about a problem than to report that something works.

I don't know, but guess it's OK. Besides the above, my understanding is
that SP3 created mountains of problems for applications accessing the user's
address book. SpamBayes doesn't try to access the address book, so wouldn't
care even if SP3 made that impossible. OTOH, we never know what Outlook API
calls try to do under the covers (that's all Microsoft secrets), so there's
no guarantee. Ask Microsoft <wink>.
Anyone know for sure about this?
