Is there any reason that you didn't download the binary installer for
SpamBayes instead? It is much simpler to get going, and is the same code.
SpamBayes 1.0.1 does not work with Python 2.4 (this will be fixed in 1.0.2).
You will need to either use Python 2.3 or the CVS source of SpamBayes. (Or
the binary, as above).

When you say "nothing happened", what do you mean? If you download new
mail, do they arrive? If you check the "Review messages" page on the web
interface, are messages listed there? When messages arrive, are they tagged
with the SpamBayes headers? (Since you're using Outlook Express, you'll
need to use the "notate to"/"notate subject" options in order to get Outlook
Express to do any filtering - are those modifications occurring?)

I do not understand the references to mfc71.dll. Why do you believe you do
not have this, and why do you believe that you need to get it?
Please always include the list (spambayes at python.org) in your replies
(reply-all), and please don't send me personal mail about SpamBayes.
