#628 Changing data folder by default_configuration.ini is ignored

Binary 1.0rc2
pop3proxy (138)

I've tried putting the default_configuration.ini file
in many different locations since the instructions in
the faq are not clear enough.

The logfiles are empty (first time install) apart from
one or two innocuous messages such as :

I've tried adding an extra backslash to the end of the
folder path (for each copy of the ini file).

    not "drive:/folder/folder") then they will be relative to
    the location of the configuration file (the
    bayescustomize.ini file, probably). So you can move this
    and they'll move too. To get SpamBayes to recognise the
    location of the moved bayescustomize.ini file, set the
    environment variable "BAYESCUSTOMIZE" to the location of the
