Assuming you're using Outlook Express, this url should help: 

If you're using another email client, the instruction details will vary 
slightly, but the idea is there.  You tell your email client to retrieve 
mail from localhost, and tell spambayes to retrieve mail from your real 
mail server.  You must change both the configuration of your email 
client, and of spambayes.  The FAQ url above should help with that.
