Summary: Outlook plugin suggestion...

Initial Comment:
First off... a general background of how I prefer to do
filtering as e-mail arrives in my inbox:

1) Filter out newsletters to sub-folders, maybe half a
dozen rules that are extremely specific.  Outlook moves
the message and then stops processing any other rules
for the current message.  These rules are so specific
that it's rare that spam gets through.

2) e-mail sent to a specific account (abuse@,
webmaster@) gets shoved into sub-folders (1 for each
account)

3) Filter out work e-mail domains.  Messages that match
this rule get left in my inbox.

4) Filter out people that I know... anyone on this list
gets left in the inbox.

5) Move everything else to a "Bulk Mail" folder.  (At
this point, the messages are 95% sure to be spammy...)

What I wish is that for rule #5, I had the option of
running SpamBayes on the message... (e.g. SpamBayes
would plug into the Rules Wizard as 3 different
conditions... ham/notsure/spam).  Then I could have 3
rules:

5a) Move everything that SpamBayes says is spam to folder A
5b) Move everything that SpamBayes says is notsure to
folder B
5c) Leave messages that SpamBayes says are ham alone.

The reason that I'd like to wait to do bayesian until
step 5 is that it gives me discrete control over the
process... if I find that too much spam gets through my
whitelist, I can choose to bayesian earlier in the process.

Also, having SpamBayes as part of the rule system,
might clean up the problem where SB doesn't notice new
messages in the watched folder.
