I haven't had an issue with Win7 after I discovered that Win7 won't let
you install to Program Files. I installed to C:\spambayes, copied over
my db and everything has worked smoothly. I have Outlook 2007, haven't
touched 2010 and Win7 64 bit.

What do you mean by closing shop?
I would just add a notice on the website that SpamBayes is not
with Windows 7 64bit + Outlook 2010, and leave it at that. It works
perfectly fine for my .procmailrc setup on Linux, and for many other

It's open source anyway. Anyone can checkout the repo, write a patch,
ask for a pull (git terminology over here, I don't know which repo
SpamBayes uses).
