Here is my problem (I'm not too technical, maybe that's the biggest
My colleague and I work both on one computer; I have administrator
rights and have no problems with spambayes and have been using it since
a few weeks now. My colleague however, cannot benefit from spambayes and
I have tried everything to install it on her account. Now, I have found
something on your troubleshooting pages, but I cannot execute the
command as stated below.
Could you please let me know how and what I should do? I understand I
have to change the path accordingly, but that is where my understanding
stops. We are working with Outlook 2003 in combination with Exchange.
Thank you for your help and I wish to congratulate you and your
colleagues for creating such a wonderful tool!
SpamBayes is not available for all users on the machine.
When SpamBayes is installed, by default it is available only for the
user who installed it. This is to allow SpamBayes to appear in
Microsoft Outlook's Com-Addin list, and therefore able to be activated
and de-activated by the user inside Outlook.
It is possible to register the addin so it is available to all users on
a particular machine, which can be useful in enterprise arrangements
where users have 'roaming profiles'
To register SpamBayes in this way, you must log on as a user with
permissions to modify the system registry, then execute the command
(obviously with the correct path substituted):
If you check the installation log
performing such an install, you should see the following messages:
Registration (in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE) complete.
Note the last line, which does not exist when registration is performed
only for the current user. Once you have performed this registration,
the Addin will be available for all users - but as noted above, it will
no longer appear in Outlook's Com-Addin list.
