Have you setup Outlook Express to connect to localhost instead of your mail

1. Open Outlook Express
2. Choose "Accounts" from the "Tools" menu
3. Double-click the appropriate account
4. Click the "Servers" tab
5. Change the incoming mail server name to "localhost" (no quotes)

Note that for Outlook Express you will also have to use the "notate to" or
"notate subject" options on the SpamBayes configuration page (e.g. tick the
"Spam" and "Unsure" boxes in "Notate Subject").


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