It is extremely useful to be able to copy the contents of a profile from one .slt directory to another, and have it Just Work. I need to do this when my profile get damaged in some way. Ideally, all the paths stored in the files inside the profiles should be relative. However, mail stores absolute paths in the following places: a) Throughout the file panacea.dat b) In the following pref keys: mail.directory mail.imap.root_dir mail.newsrc_root mail.root.imap mail.root.nntp mail.root.none news.directory mail.server.serverX.directory mail.server.serverX.newsrc.file (for multiple values of X) CCing shaver, as I seem to remember him saying that always using relative paths was a goal.
