Maybe I'm missing something, but shouldn't you just then untick the "Enable
SpamBayes" box when you turn Out of Office on, then?

If I want to auto-forward mail, I use the Outlook rules, not the Out of
Office stuff, so I'm not sure when that kicks in.  If it's at the same time
as the rules, though, then SpamBayes ought to run after it (assuming you
have background filtering enabled).  If it runs in some sort of batch mode
or something, then maybe you can get the Out of Office tool to forward mail
arriving in more than one folder?  Or increase the background filtering
