I run NAV 2003 at home, and at least as of that version NAV no longer
operates as a POP3 proxy.  It hooks directly into the network protocol
stack as a "filter" that sees the traffic on the POP3 port before
whatever application is accessing the port.  I simply configure
SpamBayes to talk to my POP3 server and my mail client to talk to
SpamBayes, and NAV filters the mail traffic as SpamBayes reads it from
the POP3 server.
