I got no error message whatsoever, and absolutely no trace of Spambayes 
in Outlook.
In the log file, which I unfortunately can't access anymore, the last 
message said something like "Access Denied" (in Dutch). I can try to get 
that log file later, but the person that works on the computer is 
usually quite busy.

Well, perfect!!! It worked! Now she is happily training SpamBayes as it 
goes! I couldn't pre-sort email, but she gets around 200 spam mails per 
day (actual number!) in that email account. It is a public account for 
business purposes, so just like a sitting duck for spammers. I think 
that SpamBayes will get pretty good at it pretty quickly...

Thanks a lot for your help!!!
