Jerome,

On unix, you can't run SpamBayes on a port under 1024 (unless you run it
as root, which is inadvisable).  You should configure the SpamBayes POP
proxy to listen on port 1110, then configure your email client to connect
to 1110.  Likewise, if you want to use the SMTP proxy, configure the proxy
to listen on 1125 (for instance), then configure your email client to
connect to 1125.

The address that was in use looks like it was port 25, which is where you
probably have a real SMTP server listening.
