OK, I have figured it out. In case you are interested:
Following skip's suggestion (separate thread) to uninstall and reinstall
SpamBayes did not fix the problem.
Answering the question below: The dialog I was referring to was the "COM
Addins" dialog box, accessed from Tools/Options/Other/Advanced Options. In
my wife's Outlook account, trying to add SpamBayes there wouldn't do
anything. But it did work after I changed her Windows account type to
Administrator. This seems to be a requirement.
I have made a donation.
Thanks for your responses,

That looks like a clue you should follow; maybe all addins are disabled?
Check "Help->Disabled Items" too.

I'm not sure what dialog you are referring to, but Outlook addins are

Uninstalling spambayes will leave all your training information behind
should you later re-install.
