AFAIK the dbExpImp script has never been updated to work with Outlook
databases, although noises have been made about doing so on several
occasions.  It wouldn't be that difficult a task, I think, but there has
never been a big call for it.

The following works for me (although this is with Spambayes and not
SpamAtBay, it should work the same):

>>> import bsddb3 as bsddb
>>> d=bsddb.hashopen("default_bayes_database.db", "r")

Hope this helps.
