The open-source "YahooPOPs!" program will allow you to read your Yahoo
mail via a POP3 interface, and you can then point the SpamBayes
sb_server POP3 proxy filter at the YahooPOPs POP3 interface to filter
your mail.


If you want to try this, you should probably wait until the next release
of SpamBayes (hopefully next week), which will include a Windows
installer for the sb_server program.  I've used this configuration
myself, so I may be able to help you out with the configuration
