Since you went to such trouble to get Linux tools onto your Cygwin box,
any particular reason you want to use a Windows-based email client?  What
email client did you use under Linux?  There are email clients available
as Cygwin packages, notably pine and mutt, as well as various mail
services such as ssmtp, procmail, fetchmail, etc.  Why not give them a
try? ;-)  You should then be able to use the same mechanism you used on
Linux to invoke Spamprobe...
