[Spambayes] Connecting to localhost

I have one pop3 account (out of four) that I want to use with spambayes.
When I try to retrieve mail I get the error message 'cannot connect to local 
host'.  All four pop3 accounts are listening on port 110.  Is this the 
problem?  I changed the pop3 account that's using spambayes to port 1110, to 
test, same problem. On the smtp side I can send mail out no problem.

Also when I try to save my configuration or restore defaults at http://
localhost:8880/config I get this error message:

500 Server error

Traceback (most recent call last):

error: (98, 'Address already in use')

Here is my bayescustomize.ini:
[Storage]
persistent_storage_file:~/.hammiedb
[pop3proxy]
listen_ports:110
remote_servers:mail.aloha.net
[smtpproxy]
listen_ports:25
remote_servers:smtp-server.hawaii.rr.com
[html_ui]
allow_remote_connections:localhost

What do I do to correct the 'not connecting to localhost' problem for my pop3 
server?
What does error: (98, 'Address already in use') mean?  Which address is 
already in use??

I'm using python-2.3-43, Suse 9.0
Thanks,
Jerome
