Is the definitive answer to this query that nothing can be done about the huge 
log file issue?

Also, I am running SuSE Linux 9.1.  I originally opened the compressed 
application files in a subdiretory of /tmp.  For some reason (could be my 
mistake) the make install routine built the proxy directories into the root 
directory of the machine, which is precisely where I do not want them to be.  
When I try moving the directories the application won't work.  Must I 
uninstall and then reinstall?  And, if yes, then how do I instruct the 
application to look at the proxy directories for the trained SPAM 

Also, I have an external box with a quarter terabyte disk.  Can I move the 
proxy directories over to that disk?
