I've dropped the Outlook plugin, and am now using the POP3/SMTP proxy.
Took me a few minutes to figure out (mostly without reading the docs)
but I'm liking this a lot!

Now I really have something I can put in place for all of my friends who
don't have Outlook.

--- What is SpamBayes? ---

The SpamBayes project is working on developing a Bayesian (of sorts)
anti-spam filter (in Python), initially based on the work of Paul
The major difference between this and other, similar projects is the
emphasis on testing newer approaches to scoring messages.

The project includes a number of different applications, all using the
core code, ranging from a plug-in for Microsoft Outlook, to a POP3
proxy, to
various command-line tools.
