IT works across multiple mailboxes (as long as they are loaded in the
same instance of Outlook)
Basically, you tell it which folders (note the plural) that receive new
emails and so need scanning.
It'll mark emails that it has looked at, so when it scans it just looks
at new emails, but does so across multiple folders (so you can still use
rules) and across multiple mailboxes

Still a little bit of a PITA though :)

I've noted it ready for investigation when I get some time..(another
reason I was looking for an Exchange "plug and go" solution)
Thanks to those who introduced DSPAM to the thread, but by the summary
it does look good for the job
