Ah, no - Robert is right, and the installer is 'broken' (well, not really,
but it doesn't install the binary for the Windows service).

There are two problems here - the readme should refer to SpamBayes/bin, not
SpamBayes/proxy, and the installer doesn't actually include the
pop3proxy_service.exe file.

So the answer is that the service isn't available with (the binary version
of) 1.0a9 (0.9).  It'll still work fine from source, of course, and running
it as a simple application rather than a service should still be fine.

Apologies for this!  I'll check in fixes in a moment.
