Superuser privileges are always needed to bind to any port below 1000 
on Unix. Are you binding to port 110?

You can work around this by a) binding to a port above 1000 and b) 
configuring Eudora to connect to that port instead of port 110. 
You'll need the "Esoteric Settings" Eudora plugin installed to make 
that change.

Did it segfault after you asked it to train messages? Raising the 
stack size allocated to new process before starting pop3proxy will 
fix this. Mac OS X has a rather small stack size by default.

Try running "limit stacksize 2048" before starting pop3proxy.py

BTW, I've updated the patch for binding to a specific address and 
posted it to Sourceforge: #670417
