What folders does he have SpamBayes set up to filter?  Check that only those
that are meant to be there are listed, and be careful about the "include
subfolders" checkbox. (This is on the Filtering tab of the Manager dialog).

Otherwise, the log file should have useful information - at least it should
say whether it is deliberating filtering all those folders.
SpamBayes->Help->Troubleshooting Guide explains where to find the log files.
