We need more information than that.  What mail client do you use?  What
type of server you do you your mail from?  (POP3, IMAP, Exchange,
something else...).

If you take a look at the README.txt included in the 1.0a5 release it
does cover installation fairly thoroughly.

Regarding where files get installed: if you run "setup.py install" then
you'll end up with a spambayes directory (with various files) in your
Python site-packages directory, and a collection of scripts in your
Python scripts directory.  If you're running the Outlook plug-in from
source, you get to choose where files are installed, plus a registry key
or two is created, and data is stored in the Windows "Application Data"
directory (see the FAQ to locate it).
