It's spambayes setup script that installs spambayes in the directory above.
If I wanted to use a different directory I would have to modify the script,
is this what you advise me to do?

I was using the wrong port number,thank you.
When I try to save the configuration I get this error message:
File "/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/spambayes/Dibbler.py", line 267, in
File "/usr/lib/python2.3/asyncore.py", line 300, in bind
File "<string>", line 1, in bind
error: (98, 'Address already in use')
I'm using port 25 as my smtp port in spambayes configuration and port 110 as
my pop3 port. I have four pop3 accounts, one of which I setup for spambayes
to monitor. All four pop3 accounts are setup to use port 110.
Which address then is already in use?
