What mail program (Outlook, Outlook Express, Eudora, Thunderbird...) are you
using?  What version of Windows?

If you're using sb_server (all mail clients apart from Outlook; this
*includs* Outlook Express, which is very different), then you should have
been given the option to include a desktop shortcut.  If the box wasn't
ticked, then one wouldn't have been created.

If sb_server is being used, then you should have a little mail icon in the
tray (the collection of icons next to the clock).  Is that the case?  Did
you read the readme that the installer offered?

Let us know more about your situtation (particularly the mail program you
are using) and we can provide more instructions.


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