Thunderbird (st least in Linux) stores all it's mail folders in a special directory, which appears to be named differently everytime it is installed. Thus maintaing your mailboxes can become a chore if you have to delete and then reinstall - I don't really know what happens to the mail boxes and preferences when Thunderbird is deleted - guess I'll have to try it.
