Summary: Monitors Inboxes for all Mailboxes

Initial Comment:
When using Outlook XP with Exchange and have multiple
mailboxes through a single exchange server.

Spambayes is monitoring the Inboxes for all of the
mailboxes selected.  Would like to be able to select it
so it only monitors one Inbox.  Have tried to select
only my inbox but always scans all the inboxes.

In Outlook Select:
Tools -> Email Accounts
Create a new or modify an existing Exchange account.

Select Change on the Exchange type account

Select More Settings:

Select the Advanced tab in the Microsoft Exchange
Server box

Add additional mailboxes to the account.

Save and close.

Install SpamBayes.  Probably still occurs if Spambayes
was already installed.

SpamBayes will monitor the Inbox for ALL of the
Mailboxes that are in the Exchange account.

Well after selecting the other users box and then
deselecting it stopped monitoring their inboxes.  Or at
least it appears that it has.

So before it was not showing them as selected but it was
grabbing the email from their inboxes.

The intention is that the initial Wizard would offer to
watch all Inboxes, but there should have been a "check-box"
against each inbox, allowing you to de-select any your don't
want to watch.

Further, in the main SpamBayes Manager dialog's 'Filter'
tab, you can specify what folders to watch.  Clicking on
Browse should allow you to select or unselect folders.

It may be possible that the initial wizard, when selecting
the folders, did not display checkmarks - can you recall if
this was true or not?  If you are willing, I can tell you
how to reset the system so the Wizard pops up next time you
start so you can check.
Are you using Windows XP? (does Outlook XP run on other than
Windows XP?  I'm not sure)
