The download for Windows can be found here: 

You can find information on installing Spambayes on Windows here: 

One extra step that I recommend is installing Spambayes as a Windows 
service.  Instructions for this can be found here: 

Each user's mail setup is different, making it difficult to give 
specific information, but some generalities are below ==>

If you are using Windows 7 or Windows 10, do not install in the default 
"Program Files" or "Program Files (x86)" location.  Most choose 
C:/Spambayes, but you can choose something else, if you wish.

Gmail in a mail client can be either IMAP or POP3, so choose the 
appropriate option during the install.

Once you have installed and configured Spambayes, you will need to 
create a filter in your mail client for the "X-Spambayes-Classification" 
header that Spambayes inserts on each email.

If you run into difficulties, reply to the list with specifics, 
including the mail client you are using, the version of Windows you are 
using, and the exact problem you have encountered.  Someone familiar 
with your email client should be able to help you.
