choose the folder of storing mail file in the account settings of 
thunderbird , or better use
imap if possible 8 so you dont have to download mail )
consult thunderbird help faqs,

if you got in trouble with firebird cache, you can set another folder 
for cache in default.ini ( i thought this was the name , look in the 
help files here too )
or minimize it, this should solve profile problems.

a good place for all this stuff may be the home directory of the user on 
the samba server , or a place on clients computer local storage
if this fits to your security
