I did a search and I browsed through the FAQ so I apologize if this has been addressed elsewhere already.
I'm running the latest Thunderbird Portable between Vista x32 and Win 7 x32 systems. I have configured the "Local Directory" path for all of the email accounts (under "Server Settings") and the "local folders" entry to point to the appropriate folder on my USB drive.
What I am finding is that as soon as I start the application, it creates "C:\WINNT\PROFILES\\Application Data\Thunderbird\Profiles\default.1a4\Mail\smart mailboxes". If I delete the entire directory tree, it gets recreated the next time I start Tbird.
A couple questions:
1. Is this expected behavior?
2. Can I configure Tbird to not do this?
Thanks in advance!
