[Spambayes] Race condition between SpamBays and AVG Anti-Virus

thanks for your comments, but I've already increased the initial delay to
the 10 s maximum. I believe this would have worked if Outlook with IMAP
removed the deleted mails automatically and not just after a purge.

I'm not aware of anyone experiencing this before - my best guess for
a solution would be to adjust the filtering delay values (to allow
AVG sufficient time to permanently deal with the message).  These are
on the Advanced Tab in the SpamBayes Manager dialog.  You'll have to
experiment to determine what the best values are.


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