[Spambayes] Problem with SpamBayes

Yes, I'm logging on as two different users. One works, the one I installed the plug in as, and one doesn't. The db and config file are stored in two different "document and settings" folders. The one that works has a 600K + db file, and the mine is still at the 24K default size...
I'm willing to run the source code version. Can I install that version and have it be executed from the plugin?

When you say "profile", do you mean a different Outlook profile, or a
different Windows user name? If you mean different "Outlook Profile", I
assume this then means from the same Windows user?

None of that should be a problem, but it may be relevant :)

This is very strange. Do all of your messages in Outlook's message lists
have a normal envelope icon?

Either way, I have opened
702&atid=498103 to track this - you may like to "monitor" this bug. In the
meantime, I am afraid I am stumped unless you are willing to setup and run
the "source code" version (see the SpamBayes pages). This would allow me to
send you quick updates to nail the problem and have the fix wind up in the
next binary.
