"Recover from spam" tries to return messages to wherever they came from.
The problem is that to do this it needs to be able to get & save certain
information and it sometimes has troubles with this - particularly with IMAP
and Hotmail accounts.  I suspect this is what is happening here, and, if so,
we don't really have a solution at present.  IIRC, your log file would
indicate that this is what is happening (maybe at a higher verbosity than
the default?).

Open up the SpamBayes Manager dialog, go to the Filtering tab, click the top
Browse button, and untick the box next to the local Inbox.
