This is strange - the log indicates that SpamBayes is running happily.

Is the SpamBayes toolbar definitely not visible?  If you right-click on the

Check to see if SpamBayes is disabled by Outlook: Help->About Microsoft
Outlook->Disabled Items.

The troubleshooting guide has some other tips to try and get the toolbar to
appear, so it would be worth trying those:

Please always include the list (spambayes at python.org) in your replies
(reply-all), and please don't send me personal mail about SpamBayes.
