[Spambayes] More Error Messages in log file?

Hi Tim,
My annoyance still stands, that if I knew that there was a compatibility
issue with OL2K I would not have tried the product.  I understand and
appreciate that this product, and many others, are all done by volunteers.
What you are failing to understand here is that my time is no more or no
less valuable than yours.  I spent a great deal of time trying to understand
what was going wrong and what could be done to get SpamBayes to work in my
environment.  This time has just been wasted by this discovery.  Simply
because of the lack of a compatibility statement for the Outlook plug-in and
this issue for OL2K.  This does not make me a happy camper and the fact that
the team that built this are volunteers does not make it better at all.

By the way, I was in the process of writing a custom rule that would further
route messages that where put in the Spam folder by SpamBayes.  It would
look for message headers that had a line added by my mail server that
indicated that it found the message in SpamCop and move it to a subfolder of
Spam.  This would leave the messages in the Spam folder to be just the ones
I needed to report to Spamcop.  It was working OK, but needed some tweaks,
too bad I will never finish it so I could show you that someone actually did
figure out how to use it and be practical at that.

Your Outlook plug-in is a great idea and I am deeply saddened by not being
able to use it.  I am stuck with it for a while as I no longer have my old
system to fall back to.  It was on my mail server and there was no way to
back it up or preserve it.  I don't own the server.

> Tim, I have 10 Pst files with hundreds of folders in each of them.

Ah, I didn't know that.

> You are suggesting that I set SpamBayes up to watch over 1000 folders,

No, now that I know it, I agree the Outlook addin form of SpamBayes would be
too clumsy for you to use.

As for the rest, all work on this project is done by volunteers, in their
spare time.  There is no "intended audience" for the project.  The original
work was aimed at high-volume server-side filtering of technical mailing
lists.  It becomes more useful for more people as more people contribute
back to the project (code, docs, whatever they feel is lacking) to better
meet their own particular needs.
