[Spambayes] junk folder problems

Did you follow the "Advanced Find" instructions in FAQ 3.12?  Where did the
message end up?
Just in case we're not on the same page as to what "filter" means, let me
ask a couple of more specific questions.  Do you have any Outlook rules that
might move the message to a different folder?  Have you ever used the
Current View options for "Last Seven Days" or "Unread Messages in This
Folder" in any of your folders?  Do you have the built-in Outlook spam
filtering enabled, and if so, which version of Outlook are you using?

Since you bring up this section of the FAQ, I must respectfully disagree
with it.  I occasionally (maybe once every couple days) see a single message
pop up in the Inbox, and then disappear.  I look in the Spam and Suspects
mailboxes, and they are empty, but the letter icon shows that something has
been received.  As far as I know, it never shows up in Deleted either.  I
have never used any filters in any of the mailboxes.  It doesn't bother me
any, because it's always spam, but someone with training problems could lose
real mail this way (if it is actually happening as I describe).  Of course,
it could be happening a lot more often than I am able to catch.
