I will do that... although we are holding off installing SP2 until our ACT! consultant gives us the green light for using the XP update with the latest ACT1 upgrade. We will let you know when we do the upgrade if any issues arise. Thanks for your response.

I'm running with XP Service Pack 2 and have had no problems.  If you're
using the Outlook add-in then you shouldn't see any difference at all
because Outlook handles all network communications.

If you're using the POP3 proxy version then you'll need to unblock sb_tray,
sb_server, and/or sb_service depending on which variation you are running.
SP2 will prompt you when you first start SpamBayes, so you'll know write
away and can just select "unblock" when asked.
