I was working from your comment that the addin works by playing with
the field on the first message of a folder if it detects that the
field is not present on startup. When I run the deletion script, this
starts Outlook via COM. I was guessing that starting Outlook via COM
loads the addin, which sees no field, so does its magic to create it,
which the delete script then deletes. But I could very easily be wrong
about this (I'm having a hard time this week recalling what day it
is :-))

Thanks. I think it does...

Anyway, as this is basically only an issue in upgrading from the "old"
field format to the "new" one, I decided to manually fix the Spam
fields' format in the folders where it was wrong. All is now OK.
