I presume that means that you're using Thunderbird, then.  Do you know that
the subject tags aren't required to use SpamBayes with Thunderbird?  You
ought to be able to filter on the X-Spambayes-Classification header, which
avoids munging up the subject header.  (Sad old Outlook Express can't filter
on arbitrary headers, so needs the subject/to munging).  I guess you might
want the munging for some other reason.

What's the older version and what's the newer one?  1.1a1 ought to be much
better than 1.0.x, but is in alpha.  1.0.4 should definitely be better than
any earlier 1.0.x's.

I don't suppose you have any more information than that?  Like the message
that it printed when it crashed?


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