I believe it will use bsddb3 by default if it is installed. So all you
need to do is install bsddb3 (from
http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=13900) and next
time you start Outlook it will be used.

After you change over you will need to do a full retrain, because
AFAIK dbExpImp.py doesn't fully support the database format used by
the plugin.
