You need to put 8110 in the "SpamBayes Ports" option on the SpamBayes
configuration page, yes.

OK, I didn't realise that Norton was overriding any changes here.  That
means the chain will have to be rearranged to:

   OE <-> Norton <-> SpamBayes <-> Mail Server

Let OE connect to pop3.norton.antivirus on port 110.  Keep SpamBayes running
on localhost 8110, but set the "Remote Servers" to pop.west.cox.net.

Now tell Norton that your mail server is "localhost 8110", not
"pop.west.cox.net 110".
