I've been using the Spambayes Outlook plugin for a while now with no
problems (and I think it's great!) but just today it has stopped loading
with Outlook. When I check the Com Add-ins panel under
Tools..Options..Other..Advanced Options I am informed that SpamBayes
failed to load due to a runtime error.

The SpamBayes log contains the following:

SpamAddin - Connecting to Outlook
pythoncom error: Failed to call the universal dispatcher
Traceback (most recent call last):

  File "E:\src\spambayes\Outlook2000\manager.py", line 355, in

Any ideas? I'm running the binary version and don't even have an e:
drive. I've tried deleting and reinstalling the plugin several times but
I still get the same error.

I've only been without Spambayes for a few hours and already I'm
desperate to get it back...

Thanks in advance for your help,
