Got the new version running.

Well that still didn't work.  However, I did experiment and changed the 
setting in the Eudora Personalities / Properties dialogue to "Never" use 
the STARTTLS (secure sockets layer?).  When I don't use SSL the message 
will send without problems.  However, I think I'd prefer to use SSL for 
messages I send.  So if it is something that can be supported in future 
versions of SpamBayes I think that would be helpful to Eudora users.  A 
temporary work around is to use the standard SMTP paths (not the localhost) 
bypassing SpamBayes when sending.

Here is the text of the error message ("Dominant" is the primary account):

<Dominant>, Connecting to the Mail Server..., EHLO <localhost send address> 
[08:52:15 AM]
SSL Negotiation Failed: You have configured this personality/protocol to 
reject any exchange key lengths below 0.  ,But the negotiated exchange key 
length is -1  Hence this established secure channel is 
unacceptable.  Connection will be dropped.  Cause: Eudora got tired of 
waiting for the server. (10100)
