[Spambayes] General configuration to change location of datab ase

I tried several variations, including placing a (new)
default_configuration.ini file with a [General] section to define the
data_directory location, but couldn't get it to work. I'm guessing that the
syntax I used to specify the location of the data directory on a network
drive was invalid, but with the available documentation, I couldn't figure
it out. My current office system is Win 2000 & I use Outlook 2000.

In which location are you putting your default_configuration.ini file?
This works perfectly for me using Windows XP sp1, Outlook 2002 SP2 and
either current cvs or 007, if I put the default_configuration.ini file
in the application data directory (and point the data directory at a
network drive).  I haven't tried putting it in the spambayes directory.
