I'm running it across IMAP with only minor problems - Outlook
sometimes complains that a message UID is invalid or has changed as
the plugin moves messages around. This seems to happen less if I
disable background filtering. It also sometimes stops filtering for
some reason if left for a while (overnight, say) but this is easily
fixed with a manual filtering pass in the morning. :)

Specs: Outlook 2000 and SpamBayes 1.0b1 (installer version) connecting
to Exchange Server 2000 using IMAP. Also runs fine with Outlook 2003.
