[Spambayes] Outlook Plugin Hanging

I've installed the 1.0 version of Spambayes (Outlook plugin - Outlook 2000,
exchange server 5), but it is still freezing up Outlook. It doesn't happen
during the day and the junk mail flows in, just overnight.

My setup is I have personal folders that my email get delivered to - it
first comes to my Mailbox, then Outlook "delivers" the mail to my personal
folders. I then have some rules that move the messages to various
sub-folders.  I've tried different combinations of telling Spambays which
folder to scan - the Mailbox/Inbox (which is the Exchange server), the
Personal Folders/Inbox, and both. I've played with the background timer
settings - turning off, turning on, changing the delay times. But sometime
during the night, Spambayes just goes to la-la land, and takes Outlook with
it. I have to kill the Outlook task and restart.

The Spambayes log does not show any errors - Here's the last bit of the log
before it died:

New message timer started - id=22533, delay=3000
The timer with id=22533 fired
Moved message 'Rosalyn is the paper ready yet?' to folder 'Mailbox -
Tsombakos, John/New Spam'
Message 'Rosalyn is the paper ready yet?' in 'Personal Folders/Inbox' had a
Spam classification of 'Yes'

The new message timer found no new items, so is stopping
New message timer started - id=22510, delay=3000
The timer with id=22510 fired

Tsombakos, John/New Spam'

New message timer started - id=22506, delay=2000
The timer with id=22506 fired
The new message timer found no new items, so is stopping



Here is the beginning of the next log, after I restarted Outlook:

Is there anything I can do? Are there suggested/recommended delay times to
use? It's driving me crazy having to have to restart outlook every day.

Thanks.
