The 'Recover from spam' button is meant to send the message back to the
folder it was in before SpamBayes moved it (here, presumably the correct
subfolder).  However, if it can't manage to do that, then it just sends it
back to the 'main' Inbox, whatever Outlook thinks that is.

Usually problems with figuring out the original folder occur with Hotmail or
IMAP stores - are you using one of those?

Your log files (SpamBayes->Help->Troubleshooting Guide explains where those
are) might have additional clues about what is going wrong here.
