Is this the Outlook plug-in?  If so, then SpamBayes doesn't play any role in
retrieving mail, so it's odd if it is SpamBayes.  What happens if you
disable SpamBayes?  What happens if you uninstall SpamBayes?
(Uninstalling/reinstalling doesn't effect your configuration or training).

What do your logs have in them?


Please always include the list (spambayes at python.org) in your replies
(reply-all), and please don't send me personal mail about SpamBayes.
