Is this message marked as read before SpamBayes gets a chance to process it,
by any chance?  SpamBayes will only process unread, unfiltered mail in the
folders it is watching.

For example, if that message is selected before SpamBayes starts working
(see the background filter timer values) and you have Outlook set to mark
messages as read after a certain period of time being displayed in the
preview pane, then this could cause that.

If this is the problem, then the solution is to wait until SpamBayes has
done it's work before marking the message as read.  (Perhaps adjusting the
timer values).


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