Summary: E_FAIL exception watching folders disables SpamBayes

Initial Comment:
system: win XP Pro, AMD 2.1 GHz, 512 RAM. Outlook 
2003

When I launch Outlook 2003, I get the following error 
message:

"There was an error initializing the Spam plugin.

Spam filtering has been disabled. Please re-configure 
and re-enable this plugin.

Error details:
Could not warch the specified folders"

I have reinstalled the plugin, and reconfigured multiple 
times, but I can't get it to properly initialize, or to check 
messages when they arrive after I've manually enabled 
SpamBayes from the configuration menu.

It works great when I manually request filtering of a 
directory though! I look forward to getting it working as 
intended.

This exact thing started for me when I upgraded to Exchange 
2003. Clients are Outlook 2000 and Outlook 2002, both 
running on XP Pro, sp1. I have yet to figure out a fix.

I struck a very similar issue myself recently, and found a
way I could "mis-configure" my profile such that Outlook
displayed an error message at startup, then immediately shut
down.  But I found an almost identical error to this in my log.

The new version will be more graceful should it get this
error.  No messagebox will be shown, and SpamBayes will not
be disabled.  The log will get a bit of noise.

I've also moved some of the initialize code to a "startup
complete" event, in the hope that this will actually stop
the error happening in the first place.

2 other dupes:
[ 831291 ] Loads with error - "Could not watch the specified
folders"
[ 831123 ] error initializing outlook addin

Adding this to the "common bugs" list.
