The readme.txt in the 1.0a5 release is as close as you get.  It's not
going to help with this problem ;)

> When i run pop3proxy.py -b i get:

This probably means that the port that it's trying to bind is already
taken.  If you haven't set anything up, then this almost certainly is
port 8880, which it's trying to bind to put the interface on.  If you
have set it up, then it might be ports 25 or 110 (or whatever you've set
it to proxy on).

Try this and see if it works:
    pop3proxy.py -u 8881 -b
(or some other port number that you know is free).
