[Spambayes] I think that I have found a bug in SpamBayes

I find routinely when I logon in the morning that 80% or so of my mail is
not rated by SB: The spam score field is blank. I just close outlook, then
re-open it, and everything gets processed fine. It seems that now that I
have cable modem, either Outlook, SB, or both is too busy to do what I want
initially, but once the unread mail is loaded, SB scores it easily.
This is a minor irritant, and during the day, because there is usually not a
big dump of new mail, it seems to not be a problem. I LOVE SpamBayes.
Thanks to all those putting in the effort.

It is not a dumb question. The answer might be dumb though. IMAP is not an
option at this particular ISP.
BTW, I removed all the mail on the server last night in order to get a more
definitive picture. This morning 23 e-mails arrived and 4 were not
This is driving me crazy. Is there a way to turn on logging in SpamBayes so
that I can get a better idea of whats going on, at least from the SpamBayes
