You have probably already received a ton of emails saying just this, but:

Spambayes with Outlook 2010 64-bit version is a no good combo. Outlook refuses to load the COM plugin, complaining that it's not a valid Office Add-in.

>From the site http://www.spambayes.org/, below, I take it as people have managed to install the plugin on Win7 - Outlook 2010, but my guess is that it's the 32 bit version of Outlook?

Mail Program

Operating System

Stable Release

Test Release


Outlook 2010

Windows 7



A number of people have reported that SpamBayes will not work on Windows 7 unless you install it in a non-default location. Installing in C:\SpamBayes should do the trick.

I haven't looked at the sources, you think it would be so-so "easy" to port it to a 64-bit version? Any plans to do that or am I on my own here?
