You didn't need to install Python*.  Python is only necessary when 
building from the source code.  You should have downloaded and installed 
the installer version (.exe).  Try it again and make sure that Outlook 
is "detected" and checked by default.  If it isn't "detected", then 
something weird is happening.

* You probably installed Python as a result of Spambayes not appearing 
right away.
