according to other postings I've seen here, Spambayes requires you to
use 32-bit Outlook even if your OS is 64-bit. 

once you get past that hurdle there are some others, e.g., you must
not install spambayes in the default location. suggestinos I've seen
include dropping the spambayes folder directly in the root directory.

since I run spambayes on Linux, I have no direct experience using it
on Winders so I probably cannot help beyond these suggestions. 

But I wish  you good luck!
