First off, please feel free to write one yourself! The source is all there,
waiting for someone to do it...<wink>.
I think that there are two main reasons why there isn't one at the moment,
and why the current developers are unlikely to create one:
1. AFAIK, none of the developers use Evolution. No itch, no scratching.
(I would maybe use it, if there was a zero-cost way for me to use it with
Exchange, otherwise my zero-cost* Outlook solution suits me better).
2. Using sb_server works pretty well. You get the same results, and all
you miss out on is a few buttons on a toolbar, plus you get a nice web
interface. If you want drag-and-drop training, you could try the
sb_pop3dnd.py script, which offers this (it's still quite alpha, though).
* Not because I'm ripping Microsoft off, but because other people are paying
Please always include the list (spambayes at python.org) in your replies
(reply-all), and please don't send me personal mail about SpamBayes. This
way, you get everyone's help, and avoid a lack of replies when I'm busy.
