John, when you say SpamBayes "stopped working", do you mean that none of the
functions work?  Have you tried waiting a while?  Does Outlook work
normally?  On mine, I get an hourglass for about 5 minutes after starting
Outlook, then everything works manually.  The automatic filtering seems to
be disabled, but it will sometimes restart after a long time (several
hours).  I'm doing an experiment today to see whether it will restart at all
-- I suspect it may have restarted before when I entered and exited the
SpamBayes Manager so I'm avoiding that today (3.5 hours so far).

If it is any help, here is my log for today (hasn't started working yet):

The above toolbar message is common - recreating the toolbar...

Is there any setting that tells the program to retry several times and then
quit?  If so, can it be changed?
