I have a similar problem, which may be related.  On my machine, Outlook
hangs for about 5 minutes with an hourglass symbol, then comes up normally,
but Spambayes automatic filtering does not start.  However, I can filter
manually, and if I wait a couple of hours, the automatic filtering starts
working again.

The log file contains:

A couple of clues which may be helpful: I recently started getting "mailbox
full" messages from the sysadmin for no apparent reason, and a password box
keeps popping up for "Personal Folders" when I go to the "training" tab on
the Manager dialog.

Other possibilities: could a Service Pack be messing up the works?  My
Outlook says Outlook 2000, SR-1.
