So the problem is with the service specifically.  You could try uninstalling
the service ("pop3proxy_service remove") and installing it again (this is
just the service itself, so won't touch any configuration or training).

Otherwise, take a look at the service in the Windows Services control panel
(possibly under Adminisitrative Tools, depending on how your Windows is
setup).  Is it perhaps disabled there?  Or something else odd is happening
