If all those pages are missing, then I suspect they all are (if it looks
like the front page is there, it might just be the browser cache).

You're changing the port that the interface is on, not the port that the
proxy is served on, right?  If you use the '-u' switch, this changes the
*interface* port.  For example, if you run "pop3proxy.py -u 8881" you
will find the interface at <http://localhost:8881>.  To change the port
that the proxy is served on, you use the configuration page
(preferably), and then change your mail client to use the port that you
have chosen.  If pop3proxy is working, then you should leave the proxy
port alone.  You might need to change the interface port, though,
depending on your system.

No, using smtpproxy is completely optional.
