You do not need to install Python to use the binary installer for sb_server
(i.e. to use with Outlook Express).  Having Python installed isn't going to

Did you read the readme at the end of the installation process?  There is no
toolbar with Outlook Express.  I'd suggest that you (re-)read the readme and
try and follow the steps outlined there to configure SpamBayes.

Non-Outlook solutions:

Microsoft Windows (little bit down the page):

Did you not understand these, or not find them?  If you can suggest
improvements, we're happy to receive them.
