Sorry for my frequent reposts on this topic in the past. I don't 
know why I'm missing messages from the list, but I just checked 
the archives and found that Tony had replied to this thread--and 
it never arrived in my inbox.

So here's my response to Tony....

Same results as before. The process starts with the expected 
output, ending in "Done." But the configuration page doesn't 
open, and http://localhost:4321 fails with "Cannot find 
server/The page cannot be displayed". Also "telnet localhost 
4321" gives an error.

It works perfectly. The configuration page opens automatically. I 
also noticed that a message displays saying, "User interface url 
is http://localhost:8880". I don't get this with 
sb_imapfilter.py. Should I?

I should say that all these tests today were done after 
downloading and installing the new official release.

Thanks, everyone, for your help. I hate to give up on SpamBayes, 
but this problem first appeared on September 30, and I need to 
find something that works.
