I'm not sure why you say this isn't the desired behavior.  At least in my
environment, I use the Outlook rules to filter off all the list mail
traffic, which I don't want special notification for, and then let SpamBayes
filter out the spam.  The only thing I want to be notified about is what's
left in the Inbox.  I'm not saying that's how everyone runs Outlook, but I
bet that this arrangement is more typical than not.

As an aside, I recently noticed that there is a built in Outlook rule action
named "clear the Message Flag".  I don't know anything about the Outlook
internals, but is there any chance that you could grab a hook to that
