Yes - the message should be moved to your spam folder (assuming you have it
set up), and trained as spam.

When this happens, are you able to use *any* of the buttons on the SpamBayes
toolbar?  I suspect that SpamBayes isn't loading for some reason (so the
toolbar will be 'dead').  Was this with 1.0a9 (0.9), or an earlier version?

If it's not that the plug-in is disabled by Outlook (but I've not heard of
it being disabled and then automatically reenabled), then the log files
should have details about what is going wrong.  We'd need to see those to be
able to figure out what's happening.
