Default Thunderbird eMail Startup

Win 7 Pro laptop.
Just now installed Thunderbird for eMail.

Have not done anything else yet.

I want to put the repository of all things Thunderbird on the D: drive.

How do I do that ?

Thank you !

Have you tried using google? I found it 2 clicks.

There are a few good hits. Maybe 4th or 5th if my link above doesn't work.

Does not work.

Thunderbird -profilemanager

Opens Thunderbird not the profile manager.

Now what ?

If you default installed then there is a Prof Mgr icon in programs.

There's also a profiles.ini folder where you can
add entries. The entries can use "relative" paths,
which are relative to the location of "profiles.ini".

But it also supports absolute paths, so you
can make a reference to an ABCD1234 folder
on the D: drive.

http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_Manager

And you don't even need to use Profile Manager, if
there is only one profile and that profile is on
the D: drive. You just need to edit the profiles.ini
and "move" the folder that way.

When you install Thunderbird

http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profiles.ini_file

it might start like this. The default uses relative paths.
The install process makes a randomly named abcd1234 folder.
A Windows search on profiles.ini, will show up to three
different files belonging to different Mozilla projects.
You select the profiles.ini belonging to Thunderbird.

[General]
StartWithLastProfile=1

[Profile0]
Name=default
IsRelative=1
Path=Profiles/abcd1234.default

You could experiment with:

[General]
StartWithLastProfile=1

[Profile0]
Name=default
IsRelative=0
Path=D:\abcd1234.default

You would copy over the abcd1234.default folder,
before running Thunderbird right after you'd edited
the profiles.ini. The profiles.ini stays in the "well
known place", while the abcd1234 folder can be anywhere.
And with one entry total, there's no need for a ProfileManager
attempt.

Can you rename the profile folder to something different from the
randomly-generated string at the same time as moving it (and tweaking
the .ini as shown above), or is that string also referred to in other
places?

Have you thought of hiring an Indian Technician who has been granted an
H-1B visa to come to the USA and help people like you? They are there
for such things and their charges are pretty competitive.

You are not going to get any help here because you don't know yourself
what exactly you want to do, let alone you don't know what your real
name is. Perhaps this is due to many Hispanics in California who are
only good at selling drugs like you.
