There was a response from Scott Burns:


He's correct that the problem here:

Is that you need to do "telnet localhost 8880" (no colon) in order to test
the connection.

When you know if you can telnet to it, you'll know whether the web interface
isn't being served, or if it's a problem connecting to it in your browser.
The latter is likely to be something to do with proxies or firewalls that
you are using.  The former could be a SpamBayes bug.


Please always include the list (spambayes at python.org) in your replies
(reply-all), and please don't send me personal mail about SpamBayes.
