Welcome to SpamAssassin Coach!
------------------------------

What Is SpamAssassin Coach?
---------------------------

SpamAssassin Coach provides additional functionality to SpamAssassin by allowing
users to learn messages as spam or ham from the comfort of their own inbox.  
Currently, SpamAssassin Coach is available as an add-in for Microsoft Outlook 
and Mozilla Thunderbird.

SpamAssassin Coach is a project of the Apache Software Foundation (ASF) and was
developed for Google's Summer of Code by William Duff.

Building SpamAssassin Coach
---------------------------

a) Mozilla Thunderbird

   Mozilla Thunderbird extensions are packaged and distributed in ZIP files with 
   the .xpi and .jar file extensions. The structure of the SpamAssassin Coach 
   .xpi file is detailed below:
   
   spamassassincoach.xpi:
                         /chrome/spamd.jar:
                                           /content/options.xul
                                           /content/spamd.js
                                           /content/toolbarOverlay.xul
                                           /locale/en-US/spamd.dtd
                                           /skin/icon.png
                                           /skin/icon16.png
                                           /skin/icon24.png
                                           /skin/spamd.css
                         /defaults/preferences/defaults.js
                         /chrome.manifest
                         /install.rdf

b) Microsoft Outlook

   Compile the source files with Microsoft Visual C# .NET.
		

Installing SpamAssassin Coach
-----------------------------

a) Mozilla Thunderbird

   Prerequisites:  Mozilla Thunderbird 1.5 or above

   Open Mozilla Thunderbird and go to Tools -> Extensions.  Then click Install
   and browse to the SpamAssassin Coach .xpi file.  Restart Mozilla Thunderbird
   to complete the installation.

Known Issues
------------

	    "msgpane has no properties."  This error does not affect the use of 
	    SpamAssassin Coach.
