[Spambayes] RE: Outlook shuts down

I had that exact problem after I converted a couple of my machines to Windows XP. Outlook was totally unusable, so I had to uninstall Spambayes. Then at a conference the other day, I thought I got a line on a registry hack that might be the answer. But when I reinstalled Spambayes (after a month of not using it), I couldn't reproduce the problem!

I continue to believe that the behavior you describe reflects a serious bug in Spambayes (or at least in the Outlook plugin). But the sporadic nature of the symptoms makes it hard to compete for the developers' attention.
