12 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)
Build Identifier: Thunderbird     version 1.5 (20051201) and Mozilla

When I used to use Netscape 4.7, the mail forlder was easily found in the program files\netscape etc.
Now, after many losses and problems, I wish to place the complete mail system on another drive, completely away from the Windows drive. If I suffered a problem, my mail would still be there on the separate drive. I think that keeping it in Documents and Settings is a bad idea and we should at least have the option of relocating it.
Thank you
Richard Steuben

The Server Settings page for each mail account has a Local Directory setting which both shows you where the mail currently is and allows you to point to a different directory, altho you have to move the mail files to the new directory manually.
