The troubleshooting guide states:

To find the log manually, you'll need to find your Windows temp directory,
into which the SpamBayes addin writes the log. This directory is generally
\WINDOWS\TEMP for Windows 95, 98 and ME, or \Documents and
Settings\{username}\Local Settings\Temp for Windows 2000/XP.

Why do you say that it says otherwise?

All versions of Outlook are bad at shutting down completely, with or without
SpamBayes, unfortunately.  This can cause many problems.

Thanks for the information.
