After opening Outlook I received the following error:
'There was an error initializing the SpamBayes addin.
Please re-start Outlook and try again.'

The log-file contains the following detailed informations:

Error connecting to Outlook!
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "out1.pyz/addin", line 1053, in OnConnection
File "out1.pyz/manager", line 724, in GetManager
File "out1.pyz/manager", line 248, in __init__
File "out1.pyz/manager", line 519, in LoadConfig
File "out1.pyz/ntpath", line 101, in join
UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte
0xf6 in position 9: ordinal not in range(128)
ERROR: 'There was an error initializing the SpamBayes
addin\r\n\r\nPlease re-start Outlook and try again.'

WORKAROUND:

As I found that the character 0xf6 (representing "ö", a
german umlaut) is part of my Outlook profile name, I
copied the profile to a name without the umlaut and
than i could start Outlook successfully !

    Thanks! This is a known issue and will be fixed in the next
    release.

    For the moment, the workaround is exactly as you described...
