I use Spambayes quite successfully with Eudora Pro. You don't use the 
Outlook plug-in (obviously) but rather the HTML interface with Spambayes' 
POP3Proxy, sorry, that feature has been renamed "SBServer".

These instructions were for an older version but you can adapt them, along 
with the info that comes along with the package.

It explains how to set up sbserver as a proxy in between Eudora and your 
ISP. It looks at mail before Eudora does and adds headers:
X-Spambayes-Classification: ham
X-Spambayes-MailId: 1085579769
X-Spambayes-Classification: spam
X-Spambayes-MailId: 1085579769
X-Spambayes-Classification: unsure
X-Spambayes-MailId: 1085579769

You then need 2 simple filters in Eudora instead of hundreds. One to check 
for X-Spambayes-Classification: unsure and flag it for attention, one to 
check for X-Spambayes-Classification: spam and trash it.

Note that Eudora handles Mime headers properly, that is, 
counter-intuitively. When you write the filter, you have to type (manually, 
it's not in the pull down list!) the whole name of the header, which is 
X-Spambayes-Classification: (with the colon) and then test for 'contains' 
"spam" (no quotes). It took me a while to figure that out.
