What this is meant to do is tell you that you don't have a suitable dbm
module available, and that you need to use a pickle, install bsddb3, or
install Python 2.3 (which you did).  Unfortunately a bug means that it
crashes instead; this is fixed for the next release.  You've already
carried out the steps that you need to in order to get pop3proxy
running, anyway.

It should be in the windows directory of the 1.0a5 archive.  I don't
think it gets installed into the Python scripts directory with "setup.py
install"; it probably doesn't belong there anyway.  The readme could
probably be clearer on this point; I'll try and fix that.
