Yup.  You *should* be able to delete everything in a folder named "temp"
without harm, and this is no exception.  SpamBayes writes information into
.log files to help us diagnose problems, but the .log files have no other
use -- if you don't have a problem, they're not needed.

Note that because of the way Windows is designed, Windows may not *let* you
delete a SpamBayes .log file while SpamBayes is running.  The only solution
to that is to close Outlook before trying to delete.

You're welcome.
