[Spambayes] SpamBayes not working

I stopped using Spambayes for a month because of precisely that behavior (with Windows XP and Outlook 2000). Then I started using it again and have been unable to reproduce the error since. I'm sure you're seeing a real problem. I'm equally sure the problem is nothing so simple as a misnamed folder.
