[Spambayes] Spambayes on Outlook Express

Well, nothing is working now.  I'm back to defaults.What I tried to do was
to set the proxy port in OE to 8110.  In SpamBayes, I set the server to
pop3.norton.antivirus (that's the right one), and its proxy port to 110.  In
OE, the server was localhost.  Of course, I get an error that no server is
found, because no one's monitoring 8110.  Should I put "localhost:8110"
somewhere, or something?

You need to set spambayes to use "norton.pop3.antivirus" as the remote
server, and (because Norton is already using your local port 110) use 8110
as the port to proxy on.

What happens is that OE connects to SpamBayes on port 8110, which connects
to Norton on port 110, which connects to pop.west.cox.net on *its* port 110.

Is this any clearer?
