How do I install SpamBayes for use with Netscape Mail?  Unless I've just
missed it, the only information I can find on the SpamBayes project site
is an unhelpful:

"If you use any other mail client on Windows, you currently need to
install a recent version of Python and the Spambayes source1, then setup
the proxy server (POP3 or IMAP) which corresponds to the way in which
you transfer mail from your mail server."

I'm not a programmer, just an experienced computer end-user.  But I need
a set of baby-steps instructions to get this sucker working.  Every time
I get started, I end up quitting in frustration.

Windows XP Pro - Netscape Communicator 4.79 - lotsa lotsa memory and
hard drive space - DSL connection - Norton AntiVirus - ZoneAlarm Pro

BTW, I'm the poster boy for spam.  I receive 600-700 messages each day
on three accounts; more than 2/3 are spam.

Please help.

Baby steps.

Thank you.
