No worries.  Thanks for letting us know that things are resolved - it's
always better to have the solution/resolution posted so that anyone looking
in the future can find it, and so that we know that we don't need to do
anything further.

Great :)

Possibly.  If SpamBayes was running, and you copied them in, then it might
have overwritten it with a fresh database.  I should remember to tell people
to make sure Outlook is closed before doing this in the future.

That shouldn't matter.

We're happy to help, donations or not (they're gratefully received, of
course, but there's no obligation, whether you get support or not).
