You do recall correctly; this is how logging works for the Outlook

:) The source still has comments about switching to a "proper"
logging system some day. It might be just that it's what I'm used
to, but I prefer finding the 'log' in the trace collector to log
files while I'm working on things (admittedly, not often these days),
just as I prefer that sb_server.py outputs to stdout if run in a
console rather than to the log files it otherwise uses. If you want
a 'good' reason, then the best I can think of is that it's quicker to
open the trace collector (assuming that one is working in PythonWin)
than navigate all the way to the data directory.
