Well, it's done in Thunderbird itself. If you go to "Settings for this
account" -> "Server Settings" -> "Local Directory" you can choose the
root of your mail folder. I always move this from C:\"Documents and
Settings"\... to E:\Mail\... so as to keep it away from Windows in case
I have to reinstall Windows. Of course, E:\ could be encrypted if I
wanted it to be.
