SpamBayes doesn't have the ability to delete any mail, so that definitely
isn't the case.  It is possible that SpamBayes is *moving* the mail - if you
haven't checked your unsure (Possible Junk) or spam (Junk) folders for these
messages, then it would be worth doing that.

Some of the information in FAQ 3.12 might help:


You could also check the SpamBayes log (SpamBayes
Manager->Advanced->Diagnostics->View Log) - it has an entry for each message
that it 'sees', so you could at least tell if the messages got that far
(although SpamBayes fires after Outlook, so if Outlook has done something
with it, then SpamBayes will have no idea the message existed).


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