[Spambayes] SpamBayes Outlook 2000 SR-1 won't move my spam

I see several entries in your log that begin with:
Recovering to folder 'Inbox' and ham training message
The "Recover from Spam" button in the toolbar only shows up on the
folders that you have configured for Possible Spam and Certain Spam, so
it usually isn't possible to generate these entries unless SpamBayes
thinks it is in one of these folders. You might check your Filtering
configuration in SpamBayes Manager to be sure your "Certain Spam" and
"Possible Spam" folders are set to what you think they are.
On a side note, I notice that you initially trained on 1058 good
messages, but only 37 spam messages. SpamBayes will be much more
accurate at classifying your messages (assuming we can get it to move
them at all <0.5 wink>) if the number of messages of each type is as
close to equal as possible. If you have 1000 good messages trained then
ideally you should also have 1000 spam messages.

Subject: [Spambayes] SpamBayes Outlook 2000 SR-1 won't move my spam

My installation of SpamBayes seems to be working up until the point that
it should be moving mail from my inbox to one of the spam folders. I
have read the help files, and checked my setup, but I can't find
anything that seems to be off. 
When I check the spam clues for some of the spam in my inbox, I might
find the rating at 100% but it is still in the inbox. In about a week of
using SpamBayes I have not gotten any messages that were moved to my
spam suspects folder, and I don't think any automatically were filtered
to my spam folder either.
I am running Windows 2000 Professional 5.0.2195 Service Pack 3 Build
My SpamBayes version for outlook is 0.81
I have included the 2 logfiles I could find on my computer. 
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.
