I did see the other one, and planned to answer it, but have been very busy
recently.  I think others have, too.  (My list of messages to deal with from
this list has ballooned up to 146, where I had it about 100 not that long

Either that, or this:
   POP3 mailserver -> Spambayes -> AVG -> Netscape Messenger
for incoming mail

Depending on which works best.

So it should be:

  Netscape receives from localhost:110
  SpamBayes receives from localhost:5110 (and sends to localhost:110)
  AVG receives from mailserver:110 (and sends to localhost:5510)

The "Stop SpamBayes" item *should* have done this.  The wee icon will change
colour once it's done.  The log should contain a message letting you know
that it's stopped.  I don't suppose you have two instances of sb_server
running somehow?  The task manager would show that.

If you still can't get it to work, let me know and I'll install AVG on a
machine I have here with Netscape Messenger and try and get it going.

Please always include the list (spambayes at python.org) in your replies
(reply-all), and please don't send me personal mail about SpamBayes. This
way, you get everyone's help, and avoid a lack of replies when I'm busy.
