The 1.1a1 sb_server (POP3 Proxy) should not be used.  Use 1.0.4 or  
(if you really want to be on the cutting edge) 1.1a2.

Please send us an example of such a message (using "forward as  
attachment", so that we get the headers as well).

We are carrying out research at the moment into ways that this sort  
of spam can be dealt with.  For now, there is still some information  
in these messages for SpamBayes to work with, so using a well-trained  
database is the best you can do.  (You could try enabling the  
use_bigrams option, and you should ensure you are using a good  
training regime).


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