[Spambayes] Spambayes has stopped working

I am using SpamBayes POP3 Proxy Version 1.0.4 (March 2005) (binary), with
version 2.3.5 (#62, Feb 8 2005, 16:23:02) [MSC v.1200 32 bit (Intel)] of
Python; my operating system is Windows 5.1.2600.2 (Service Pack 2). I have
trained 1610 ham and 2842 spam.

My copy of Spambayes, taken from a magazine cover, has suddenly stopped
connecting to the POP3 server. There didn't seem to be a time limitation
and it's not asked for money or anything. If I put the server address into
the client it works fine, so I can't see how it can be at the server end.

The error message I get is:

!28/11/2006, 18:07:24: FETCH - Server reports error. The response is:
 -ERR Can't connect to mail.interdns.co.uk:110: 10061

I tried using the Spambayes bug reporter, and this gave an error message:

500 Server error

Traceback (most recent call last):

  File "spambayes\Dibbler.pyc", line 470, in found_terminator

  File "spambayes\UserInterface.pyc", line 1120, in onSubmitreport

  File "smtplib.pyc", line 240, in __init__

  File "smtplib.pyc", line 302, in connect

error: (10061, 'Connection refused')

This isn't much help :-(
I'll report it to the SF bug page.
