I've noticed this bug too and have reported it to SM.

We have over 340GB of logs in this folder, which would compress down to less than 1GB if the logs were being written to the correct folder!

I reported also to SM but was told that these are logs specifically relating to the SmarterMail web interface and con not be moved.

The problem is that even setting them to exception only they are getting to be nearly 50 GB a month and as they are on the c drive and can not be moved to have manually delete the logs.

Really need for SM to allow them to be moved or reduce the size of these logs.

Maybe using a symlink will allow us to relocate the log files.

I'll test this out when I get a chance!

If they can't be moved then ST should make sure that the auto compression and deletion of logs files is also applied to this folder too.

I am sure I tried a symlink and it did not work. Could be wrong though as it was nearly a year ago that I looked in to this and contacted SM support.
