[Spambayes] IMAP filter failes (readonly issue) - HELP!!! :(

I'm using IMAP as my main mail service, and was pointed to by a friend to
SpamBayes as a good solution for killing all the annoying spam flying around
However, I've not been able to get the thing going since I get
"imaplib.readonly: HamBox is not writable" error (complete trace below).
I've used the very helpful info from "Setting up Server-Side Spam filtering
for IMAP" (http://www.boost-consulting.com/writing/server-side.html), and it
was a real treat - you should at least add a link to it in the FAQ.
Still no-go :(
I'm using a windows system and my mail server is Mdaemon. I've tried to
close outlook while running the script, but it didn't change a thing. No one
was using the server at the time of the test.
I've installed the following packages:
win32all-155.exe (Python w32 add-ons)
I've setup bayescustomize.ini as follows:
password: <that's for me to know :) >
and here is what I got:
C:\Program Files\python\spambayes-1.0a4>..\python.exe imapfilter.py -t -v
SpamBayes IMAP Filter Alpha1, version 0.01 (May 2003),
using SpamBayes IMAP Filter Web Interface Alpha1, version 0.01
and engine SpamBayes Beta2, version 0.2 (July 2003).
