Thanks very much for the reply, Tony.

I guess I intended a double meaning. I've considered POPfile, but 
IMAP is still very experimental, and much more difficult to 
install than SpamBayes' IMAP support. And while I like POPFile, 
there are a couple of things about SpamBayes I prefer.

So as long as I can continue to get help, I'm willing to stick 
with it, and possibly make a contribution to the development 
effort, as well.

No way! :-)

Thanks. I'll check my settings. But I did get this latest message 
of yours.

No, it doesn't stop. The last thing I see (in verbose mode) is

Thanks for this. Here's what I get:

and engine SpamBayes Engine Version 0.3 (January 2004).
