I just got another message from the same user after moving my

Just as a test I am going to add a filter just for this user and see if that
catches as I believe the issue is related to the To: address being a

Are you getting that score from the score column in Outlook or using the
"Show clues for this message"? If not the latter, what happens if you do

Training (recovery) isn't about addresses, it uses the entire content of the
email. The clues list (as above) shows the information that is used for
training. Posting a clues list for one of these messages (before training)
to us might help.

What that means is that SpamBayes couldn't store additional information with
the message (this probably includes the score, too, so that could explain
why the score is always 0%). If it can't do that, then it falls back on the
default store's inbox. Is this an IMAP store? The problem is reasonably
common with IMAP (and is addressed in 1.1a1).

I'm guessing from the error that the message has already moved, but Outlook
hasn't updated the display. If you do that and then look in the default
Inbox, is the message there?
Please always include the list (spambayes at python.org) in your replies
(reply-all), and please don't send me personal mail about SpamBayes.
