[Spambayes] Moving spam to the junk folder

I am also seeing this exact issue.  I have Exchange 2003 with Outlook 2000
Clients.  It started after I started pushing out Windows XP SP2.  I went to
one machine and did a roll back to SP1 and the issue has went away.
I think it is a MS issue.  Possible firewall issue.  I watched the firewall
log on my local pc for any hits but didn't see any.  I went through and put
the Exchange 2003 server on static ports.  From researching the MS end, the
communication back from Exchange to outlook for "refresh" is done with UDP,
which the outlook client is never hearing.
This is still an issue at my site.

The display refresh is probably not related to Exchange version; I've seen
it with Exchange 2000 and Exchange 2003.


It is complex: I monitor two PCs, same version Windows (XP/SP2), Outlook
2003 (Cached mode or not appears unrelated), with mail folders on same
Exchange Server.  


Upon clicking "Delete as SPAM" or "Recover from Spam" one of the PCs
instantly updates the Outlook display; the other PC requires the "manual
refresh" approach.


Go figure! <VBG>

This is a known issue when certain versions of Outlook and Exchange are used
together. I can check the version numbers if you are interested. I bellieve
it's newer versions of Outlook with older versions of Exchange, i.e. Outlook
2003 and Exchange 5.5 exhibit this behavior. You have to switch folders in
order for the folder contents to refresh. The message is there, it's just
not being displayed.

Actually, the move is carried out immediately, but Outlook doesn't update
the display.  It's quite common for people to experience this with both
Outlook 2002 and 2003 (always with Exchange, I think).

Annoyingly, we don't know what causes this (and it didn't use to happen, and
doesn't appear to be caused by something we are doing differently).  We are
looking into it, though, so hopefully will find a solution soon, and will
include that in an upcoming release.

For the moment, this doesn't actually cause any problems - your Outlook
display is just slightly out of date, which quickly resolves itself.
