Gmail pop access requires POP over SSL (hence the port 995).  SpamBayes
1.0.x doesn't support POP over SSL (1.1 will have limited support).  So you
can't just use the two together, unfortunately - although you can use them
together if you add something else like stunnel as well.

Another SpamBayes user has written up instructions about how to do this -
that's probably the best place to start:



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