Hi all,

I found spambayes through a link in a tagline, downloaded it, installed
Python and spambayes, tried to get it working on Outlook Express, got a
million errors and subscribed to this list. ;-)

My question (probably asked a zillion times, but couldn't find anything
usefull in the archives) is: Is there a step-by-step
newbie-with-no-knowledge-at-all guide on how to use spambayes with
Outlook Express?

When i run pop3proxy.py -b i get:
C:\SpamBayes>pop3proxy.py -b
SpamBayes POP3 Proxy Beta2, version 0.2 (September 2003),
using SpamBayes POP3 Proxy Web Interface Alpha3, version 0.03
and engine SpamBayes Beta2, version 0.2 (July 2003).

    return self.socket.bind(addr)
  File "<string>", line 1, in bind
socket.error: (10013, 'Permission denied')

Permission denied on a Windows system? ;-)

Well, Windows XP Pro at this end. Latest stable Python. What else do you
kings need to help me out?
