Yes, you can. In prefs.js, set: user_pref("mail.root.none", "/path/to/root/folder"); user_pref("mail.server.server1.directory", "/path/to/root/folder/server/user"); user_pref("mail.server.server2.directory", "/path/to/root/folder/local"); and any additional serverX you might have. Then just move the server and local folders from where they were before to their new location.

Unfortunately, I find no way to change the addressbook. Does anyone know how to move the addressbook? I tried playing with some prefs, but had no luck.

address books stay in the profile. You can't move 'em.

You can always use sym links in *nix OSes, this allows sharing of address books between Windows and Linux and the Mozilla Suite and Thudnerbird. I don't think there's a similar convention in windows though, if so, I'd love to know about it.
