You need to do two things:
1. Turn on (if you haven't already) either the "notate to" or "notate
subject" option, which you can find on the configuration page of the web
interface. You should probably tick both "spam" and "unsure" for one of
these options. This is necessary because Outlook Express doesn't let the
user filter on very much.
2. Set up a rule in Outlook Express (like any other rule). The easiest
way to do this is (after step 1, and receiving mail) to right click on a
message that needs to be moved and select "Create rule from this message".
For example, if you use the "notate subject" option, messages that SpamBayes
thinks are spam will have a subject that starts with "spam,". You can
right-click on one of these and create a rule that moves all messages that
start with "spam," to a spam folder, for example.
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.
