is it me? or with the release of moz1.5 and TB 0.3 has the option of changing the location of my mailstore been removed. up until now, i've chosen to store my email folders in my data partition, away from my normal profile data. up to Mozilla 1.5 this was a simple option in mail/news prefs for each account.

but with the new releases that option seems to have gone. Moz has remembered (from my profile) where the email is, but a fresh install of TB doesn't seem to be able to be told where my mail folders are. i know i could copy the profile for moz into the TB folder, but thats not going to help if/when i wipe everything and start over.

it's going to be really annoying if i have to move my email folders back into the depths of my c:

does anyone have any ideas? or have i missed something blindingly obvious.
