, tudo bem? Que tal o jogo ontem? Great result for Brazil, nÃ£o Ã©?
Anyway, in answer to your question, no, I'm not using the default directory for the messages. I have them stored on a FAT32 partition which has Windows XP installed on it, so that I can send and receive mail seamlessly under Windows XP and SL using the same files. You can read how I set it up in the SL Wiki:

Since installing Thunderbird 220.127.116.11 under SL 3.3 x86-64 I have installed 3.4 Loop 2b x86-64 without problems and copied the directory .thunderbird that I backed up under SL 3.3 to an external USB HDD to my new home directory under 3.4 loop 2b, and then upgraded Thunderbird from 18.104.22.168 to 22.214.171.124 also without problems.
When I first installed Thunderbird I got it working for my POP3 mail account first and then later installed the WebMail extensions for Hotmail and Yahoo Mail. I had to do a little editing in one or two files under the Thunderbird folder in the Windows XP partition for those too. I cannot remember exactly what I did, but it was something like this:
1) installed the Webmail extensions for SL Thunderbird;
2) set-up and configured in SL Thunderbird the Webmail accounts;
3) installed the Webmail extensions for Windows Thunderbird;
4) copied some SL files across from the hidden ~/.thunderbird directory and its subdirectory to the corresponding Thunderbird folder and subfolder in the Windows partition;
5) edited the Linux paths to Windows paths.
I cannot remember precisely which files I copied and edited, but it was not many and it was not too difficult to deduce which ones to copy and edit. I copied the extensions folders from the SL extensions directory to the equivalent Windows folder (...\Profiles\o6wzbdjb.default\extensions in my case) and I might have edited the file extensions.ini and one or two other files in the Windows partition but cannot remember. I copied the SL file prefs.js across to overwrite the Windows file prefs.js, and edited it to change the Linux path format to Windows path format.
