Summary: SpamBayes can't register correctly with Outlook 2010
SpamBayes is listed as an inactive add-in and does not have a location. When attempting to add the add-in manual, the message "'C:\Program Files (x86)\SpamBayes\bin\outlook_addin.dll' is not a valid Office Add-in." appears.
I am in the same boat as everyone. I am running Outlook 2010 x64 and Win 7
x 64. When I install SB nothing happens. I am not even getting it to
appear in the add in window at all. I have tried reinstalling it several
times but nothing happens.
The SB help section says that if Outlook does not show it in the add-in
area to do this: If the SpamBayes addin is not listed, then SpamBayes
should be reinstalled (Note that running regsvr32.exe outlook_addin.dll or
bin\outlook_addin_register.exe from the SpamBayes directory may also solve
I just wanted to report that the first file (regsvr32.exe) does not even
exist on my computer anywhere, not to mention in the Spam Bayes directory.
And I tried clicking on the 2nd one a few times and nothing happens at all.
I am with everyone else. I love spam bayes and really don't want to try
another spam filter. this is the best one out there. But something needs to
be done to make this work with Outlook 2010 x 64. I hope to see an update
I had the same problem with Outlook 2007 on a 32-but Win7 machine. OL
started crashing and the only way to get it to run was to start up with
Spambayes disabled. But then I couldn't re-enable SpamBayes -- enabling it
had no effect. The toolbar wouldn't show up, and when I'd look at my
add-ins again SpamBayes was still disabled.. Reboots didn't help, and it
was already listed as a DEP exception. I tried uninstalling and
reinstalling but that didn't work either -- until I uninstalled, renamed
the spambayes program folder, and reinstalled. Now it's working. And
fortunately, I didn't lose any of my settings or spam database.
I have the same problem with Outlook 2010 x32 and Win7 x64. "SpamBayes can
not get registred". Changing DEP and access right for the SpamBayes folder
did not work. Very sorry, we love SpamBayes too.
I am running Outlook 2010 (64-bit version) and I get this same issue. I
assumed it was with Spambayes not being 64-bit compatible, so I manually
compiled/linked this using Python 2.7 (64-bit) and the 64-bit version of
the pywin32 for Python 2.7. This just made my Outlook crash every time I
We LOVE SpamBayes and would like support to be added for 64-bit version of
Outlook 2010. Our mailboxes have gotten over 12GB and we need all the RAM
usage we can get!
