[Spambayes] various items

In our case (also a school), each student has a Windows 2000 server private
disk space which we call "H" through a local drive MAP command (Windows 2000
clients, Outlook XP (2002) - Exchange server 5.5).
I, personally, have the situation of (dial-up) home access and local connect
here on campus.
The ideal here would be to have the controlling database be located on the
student's "H" so that it "looks" the same from any of the 20 or so public
desktop computers on campus. Each person has their own login. Having the
data file in the single location would mean no synchronizing required.

I'm not exactly sure what you mean by "profile".  Is this to do with
using the same copy of Outlook for two users?  In that case I'm not
sure.  If you are logging in separately (using WinNT, Win2k or WinXP),
you'll all have separate databases.

There's nothing stopping you sharing the files between machines.  The
only caveat is to be sure that the db version is the same on both
machines - if you are using the Outlook binary on both, then you have
nothing to worry about.

The file that you need to copy is (probably) stored in c:\Documents and
Settings\username\Application Data\Spambayes (for WinNT, Win2k and
WinXP).  You can just sync between machines with whatever tool you would
normally do sync'ing with.  The particular file you're after is called
