It'll output whatever a connection to that port gives.  If you telnet to
localhost:1025 while netcat is running, whatever you type should be
echoed on the screen.

If you run "pop3proxy.py -b", then these ports may be bound:
 * port 8880, or whatever you have set in the "html_ui":"port" option.
 * whatever ports you are proxying POP3 servers on.
 * whatever ports you are proxying SMTP servers on.

With an empty bayescustomize.ini/.spambayesrc, only the first applies.
Can you definitely bind port 8880?
