Is there any way that Outlook could be moving the message (a rule, for
example)?  It really shouldn't be possible for SpamBayes to process a
message without generating the log entry.

If you disable/uninstall (doesn't effect training/configuration) do any
messages end up in the Review folder?  If so, then something else is
obviously to blame (I can't see how, but maybe a second SpamBayes instance?
Or Outlook, or another plugin?).  If not, then maybe it is SpamBayes somehow
- but I can't think of where to even start looking in the code.
