Thanks, Jesse,
I looked at all three of these links and none of them seemed to apply to
my situation.
As mentioned, one of the problems is that I am not receiving any
incoming mail, even that I am sending to myself.  I remember reading
something in the SpamBaye's documentation to the effect incoming
messages are first "intercepted" (my word)  by SpamBayes until a
determination is made regarding whether they are Spam, Ham or something
else.  Obviously, I configured the program incorrectly and thus the
incoming messages are someplace between my inbox and whereever SpamBaye
places the "intercepted" messages.  
Thanks for your help,

	Maybe someone else has heard of or experienced this, but I
haven't, so I did a Google search for "spambayes outlook express missing
messages." I turned up several links with various approaches to the
problem. Perhaps they'll help:

	Yesterday I installed the latest edition of Spambayes and
configured it.  This morning I had no incoming messages at all.  Worse,
all the messages in my inbox (Outlook Express) dating from July forward
were missing.  I opened the four small icons that were in the taskbar
but they indicated that no messages had been received.  Thinking that my
missing messages would reappear, I uninstalled Spaybayes, restarted the
computer but the messages were still missing.  I also did a system-wide
search for Spambaye with no results.
	I then sent messages to myself, but they never arrived.
Consequently, I called my ISP, Comcast, but they couldn't help me.
	Can you tell me how I can receive incoming mail again, and if
possible, recover the hundreds of missing messages.
	Since I can't receive any email from Outlook Express, please
send your reply to my alternate address, zulu6334 at hotmail.com
