This is more-or-less what happens.  It's up to Outlook when it tells
spambayes that there is new mail, and when Outlook decides to do this
depends on a whole host of things.

Your best solution is to enable the 'timer'.  This is an experimental
feature in 007 (look at the configuration guide, which you get to via
the 'about' button), but in the soon-to-be-release 008, it is just a
regular feature (in other words, you don't have to be wary about the
'experimental nature' of it).
