The script doesn't work as it stands (COM error "Unknown Trust
Provider", which I suspect is due to our Active Directory setup
somehow) but I hacked to to just look at the Inbox.

I did this, and got a colleague to send me a mail (while I did *not*
have Outlook running). dump_props shows no Spam property.

Started Outlook, it wasn't filtered, and there was still no Spam

Filtered manually, and the Spam property appeared as expected...

For what it's worth, I attach the output of dump_props.py from
before I started Exchange, after I started but did nothing else,
and after I manually filtered the Inbox. I also include the trace
output from the addin after the startup filtering happened.
