Several months ago, I had a COM made to bridge between my email client (we're developing a new email client for Windows) and the SpamBayes spam filter, which is written in Python. The COM was written by someone from RAC. Unfortunately, he has been unresponsive to fix the problems. We are a week away from release, and the spam filter side of the app (which is mission-critical) is still malfunctioning. We don't know Python, so cannot delve into the code and figure out what's wrong. I suspect [url removed, login to view] needs modifications but I am not sure. There are two issues. 1, We have source files (made by the RAC coder) which are creating a COM object from SpamBayes [url removed, login to view] or SpamBayes [url removed, login to view], but it isn't working well. This can be because these version are both alpha and probably not stable enough. So this is why I want to create the SpamBayes COM by using the last stable release, which is 1.0.4. I tried to do it myself and the build is created without errors, but the resulting COM isn't working. So this is the first task. 2, When we have COM with version 1.0.4, then it could happen that the SpamBayes COM still won't function well. In this case the work of the original RAC coder, (the Python source file), that implements the COM needs to be fixed. This is the second task. It's possible that the second task will not be needed at all, because migrating to version 1.0.4 may fix it also. But I can't tell until issue 1 is resolved.
