I suspect, although I am not 100%, that this means that the tray application
does not work with Windows 95 (I'm guessing that some part of pywin32 that
is used needs something in Windows 98 or higher).

Try running the sb_server.exe file directly, rather than via the tray
application.  This file is in the "bin" directory in the directory you
installed SpamBayes into (probably C:\Program Files\SpamBayes).
Double-click that file and then try going to this address:


If that works, let us know and we can explain where to go from there.  If it
doesn't, please let us know what the logs contain for that attempt.


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