No, you can't do this with SpamBayes (it's a filter, not a mail manager),
but you can do it with just plain Outlook.  You can setup a rule to move
messages to a folder based on a header value, which would do this.  As long
as SpamBayes is using background processing, then that rule will run before
it does, so it won't filter any of those messages (as long as the
destination folder isn't being filtered).


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