I did some more tests, with the following results:

1. mail recovered from spam goes to PST Inbox, not to IMAP Inbox. I can't
configure this.
2. mail moved from IMAP to PST (programatically or manually) is also
copied to the IMAP Trash. This is default behavior for Outlook. It has
nothing to do with SpamBayes.
