[Spambayes] Eudora-Using Newbie

Well, now I've read what seems to be all the FAQs and many of the archives
in the forum list.
The problem is that I do not understand how to do something that is
commanded in the FAQ - and there doesn't seem to be an explanation of how
to carry it out.
Within the Eudora GUI I am supposed to:
"Configure pop3proxy for each of Eudora's personalities' POP3 servers,
specifying a separate port for each. For example 1110, 1120, 1130 and 1140
for four personalities. Do the same for smtpproxy - for example 1115, 1125,
1135 and 1145 corresponding to the four POP3 servers."
But within the "properties" dialogue for personalities in Eudora there is
no "slot" or "text box" or specific place to specify a port. It seems like
such a simple instruction but I have no idea where to specify the port
inside of Eudora 5.2. This, I think, is the main problem with my
configuration errors. If I could know how to do this then I think I could
make it all work.
However... I tried to use some of my (very meager) background and within
Eudora I specified the POP3 server as "localhost:1110" and the SMTP server
as "localhost:1115" making the apparently incorrect assumption that all I
needed to do was add the colon and a port number in a format that many
servers seem to use.
I ran the "setup.py install" command and that seemed to work as it ran a
series of builds and other stuff in the command line window. Then it ran
install scripts creating many .py files including the pop3proxy.py. Then I
ran the "pop3proxy.py -b" and the web interface came up stating that I have
POP3 proxy running on 1110, 1120, 1130 proxying mail to
mail.comcast.net:110, etc., for the other 2 accounts. and the SMTP proxy
running on 1115, 1125, 1135, etc.
I have modified the eudora.ini file as instructed and the accounts are
showing up with properties looking like this: POP3 server=localhost:1110,
SMTP server=localhost:1115, and 2 other accounts likewise.
However, Eudora complains:
"Error getting network address for localhost:1110 - cause: host not found
(11001)", etc. for all 3 accounts.
Being somewhat of a neophyte I am not able to further debug this problem.
If you can help me directly that's great, or if you can point me to an
answer or additional information on "what to do next" after one has read
[presumably] all the FAQs, etc. There may be other things I need to read
but I'll be darned if I can find which ones and where. I'm stuck for now.
