Enabling SpamBayes on Outlook 2007 on Server 2008 x64

After installing SpamBayes Addin for Outlook 2007 on my Server 2008 x64 "workstation" I started receiving the following message when starting up Outlook 2007: "Outlook experienced a serious problem with the 'spambayes' add-in."
The fix was to disable DEP for that application. To do this on Server 2008:
  • Start > Computer > right click > Properties (System Control Panel)
  • Click Advanced System Settings
  • Under Performance click Settings...
  • Click on the Data Execution Prevention tab (have you worked out what DEP stands for yet?)
  • Click Add... and then navigate to the application that was causing problems and add it.
If you've already disabled the Addin on Outlook 2007 you're going to want to re-enable it:
  • In Outlook 2007 select menu Tools > Trust Center
  • On left panel click Add-ins
  • Under Disabled Application Add-ins select the Add-in that you disabled.
  • From the Manage drop down select Disabled Items and click Go...
  • Select the disabled item and click Enable.
