[Spambayes] Problem with SpamBayes Proxy: Cannot configure

Based on what you have provided, it appears that the following values 
should be used in the web config page:

Remote Servers: *inbound.att.net:995* (att uses yahoo mail servers)
SpamBayes Ports: *8110* (although this could be any unused port)

Then, you would configure Windows Live Mail's pop3 server setting to use 
localhost (or for the server on port 8110 (or the port you 
chose above).  Create filters to sort the mail classified by spambayes.  
Security/Encryption settings (ssl, tls, etc.) would remain as you 
currently have them.

Additionally, everything I have read on this list suggests that on 
Windows 7, spambayes should _not_ be installed in "Program Files".  Many 
suggest "C:\spambayes" instead.
