[Spambayes] POP3 Issues

We are rolling now!  Life is going much better.  The only snag now is with
the SpamBayes configuration Web Page.  I can set up the POP3 portion just
fine, but when I put in a SMTP address and a name, I get a message that says
SMTP Proxy ports specified must equal number of servers specified.  I listed
one SMTP and put in one name.  I have put in 0-4 with no success.  Where am
I going astray now???

Thanks.  Previous tips made the lights come on.  Greatly appreciated!

In pythonwin, when you click run script, in the dialog that appears
enter "install" on the line that read "arguments" instead of after the
script. Or just open a command prompt and type the commands in there. eg.
python setup.py install
...or if you don't have your path setup...
C:\python23\python setup.py install
