Ok, all this is good, and indicates that whatever is wrong is not terribly

This *might* be caused by the pop3proxy running in the wrong directory.  The 
current directory for pop3proxy should be spambayes-1.0a2   The 
bayescustomize.ini should be in that same directory.  Then you simply run 
pop3proxy.py from the command line.  If you're doing all this, and you still 
have the ui error, then check to be sure that you have a file named ui_html.py 
in spambayes-1.0a2\spambayes\resources.  If that file exists, then I'm 
stumped.  Lemme know  :)
