[Spambayes] Another bug? Outlook 2000 win2k

Well it isn't quite like Tony said.  I have the SPAM column showing and it
did say 0% on the message before I opened it.  But when I look at the trace
log it says:
Processing 41 missed spam in folder 'Inbox' took 116781ms
Message 'subject line' had a Spam classification of 'No'

So it is like it is processed or at the very end of processing and then I
read the message and then it changes it to unread.  I had also replied to
the message and that
status was lost also.  I think that part of the problem may be the fact that
reading mail from the exchange server is a lot slower than if you use pop.

I think I mentioned something about this on the list a while back.  If it's
the same behaviour as I was seeing, then it's caused by messages not being
scored/filtered immediately (presumably the hook doesn't get called).
Meanwhile the message is marked as read.  Then the hook finally gets called,
the message is scored, and left as unread.

Does this match what you are seeing?

I presume that a fix for this would be to record the unread/read status of
the message before scoring, and set it to the same after scoring is
complete.  Mark might do this at some point, although he seems busy with a
lot of other fixes :) at the moment.
