The sb_dbexpimp.py script (in the source distribution) will let you do this.

Do all of these systems have access to a shared store?  (A network drive, or
something?)  If so, then an easier solution would be to set your data
directory to be on that shared drive and have all the Outlook's access it.
Help->About SpamBayes->Configuration Guide explains how to do that.
