You can also run the script using "pythonw" instead of "python" (i.e.
"pythonw sb_server.py").  That will invoke it as a background Windows

On Windows, you might want to run pop3proxy_tray.py instead of running
sb_server.py directly.  It starts sb_server for you, but also you gives
you an icon in the tray with a right-click menu for easy access to
Review Messages, Configure, etc.  Again, invoke using pythonw to avoid
the DOS box.
