Create a new profile. While doing so you will be asked where you want the profile to be created at. point it to where ever you wish.

The "create new profile" method is working fine for imap-accounts but not for pop3-accounts.
Is there a way to store a pop3-mailbox in the "choosen"-profile-directory and not under %APPDATA%\Thunderbird\Profile\... ?

You can set up a filter to transfer all messages that come into your pop3 accounts into Local Folders. Your profile directory can remain where it is. You can then set up Local Folders to be anywhere:

Tools->Account Settings->Local Folders->Local Directory

Resize the Account Settings window if you don't see this option.

I found a better way to do it: just edit the .js file in the profile
