Yes, I've used it successfully with both YahooPOPs and Hotmail Popper.

Sounds like you are trying to configure YahooPOPs and SpamBayes to listen on
the same port.  The correct configuration when your POP server uses a port
other than the default 110 is as follows:

Leave YahooPOPs configured as is.  In the SpamBayes configuration, set the
Remote Server to "localhost:112" and set the SpamBayes port to 113.  Now
configure your mail client to get mail from server localhost and port 113.
