In theory, all you need to do is this:

1.  Download spambayes 1.0a6.
2.  Expand the archive and open a command prompt into that directory.
3.  Run "python setup.py install"
4.  Run "windows/pop3proxy_service.py install"
5.  Put a shortcut to "pythonw windows/pop3proxy_tray.py" into your
startup items folder.
6.  Use the tray app to configure spambayes.
7.  Stop spambayes.
8.  Start spambayes again.

(Steps 7 and 8 are only necessary because of a bug in 1.0a6).  Note that
we are currently testing a binary installer that will change the steps
required to:

1.  Run the installer.
2.  Use the tray app to configure spambayes.

Hopefully it shouldn't be too far off.
