I got no error message whatsoever, and absolutely no trace of Spambayes
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!!!
