[Spambayes] (no subject)

In respect of the data you supplied me I have taken some advice from Jesse.
I have changed SpamBayes to filter mail into a new folder named Spam Mail
and Spam Suspects. 

I have no rules created anywhere for these folders and will not create any
rules for them,  I do have a rule for moving mail with the subject [SPAM]
into Junk Mail folder but besides that I have nada.

So I assume this will tell me what is going on.

Let you know what happens.

I don't believe SpamBayes is moving these messages into your Junkmail folder
to begin with.  There's nothing in the log file saying that SpamBayes
classified the message as spam, the SpamBayes score is as hammy as is
possible to get (0%), and when you train on one of these the log says
something like:

    Unable to determine source folder for message 'Daily Syslog statistics
         for Fri, 09 Dec 2005' - restoring to Inbox

If SpamBayes had moved the message to begin with, SpamBayes would have
remembered which folder the message came from to begin with.

To verify one way or the other, try turning SpamBayes off (SpamBayes
-> SpamBayes Manager ... -> remove the check mark next to "Enable
SpamBayes" -> click Close).  I bet these messages still end up in your
Junkmail folder then.

If so, you have some other gimmick that's moving your messages.  Can't guess
what from here, though.  Perhaps you have an Outlook rule that moves them,
or perhaps Outlook's builtin junk filter is moving them (try turning that
off), or perhaps you installed something else ...
there's no way to tell from here.  Whatever, I see no evidence that
SpamBayes is moving them, but do see evidence that SpamBayes is not moving
