You can untrain a false positive by locating it in the spam folder and
marking it as ham.
Concerning the error message, that is not even an Outlook feature. It is a
typical Exchange error message. Spambayes certainly has no influence at
all on Exchange. It can only be a coincidence that these messages started
around the same time.
Ask your (or his) Exchange administrator for more information.
