Note that this will give terrible results - the only mail you've shown
SpamBayes is spam, so any mail it sees will look like spam.  Generally it's
a good idea to have roughly the same amount of ham and spam trained.

You log indicates that you've setup SpamBayes correctly, so presumably you
just haven't made the required change in your mail client.  Just open up the
settings for your mail client (if you say which one it is we can probably be
more explicit) and change it to get mail from "localhost" rather than
"pop.west.cox.net".  That should be all that's required.
