It's not clear whether this is a critique or a request for help.  Assuming
the latter:

  * Make sure you are trying to use the POP3 proxy (sb_server) and not the
Outlook plug-in.  The Outlook plug-in requires Outlook 2000 or above.

  * What setup have you done?  The readme that the installer offers to show
you at the end describes the setup required.

  * What do you mean by saying that it "will not run (load?)"?  Does mail
still get through to Outlook?  Is mail classified but not filtered?  Is mail
not classified at all?  Does mail show up in the SpamBayes review page?

  * What do your log files have in them?  (The troubleshooting guide
explains how to find the log files).

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