I think it would work if you could use a format that both Linux and
Windows could read.  What's the mail directory format that they both
can read?  Is it mbox?  I know I was able to swap between Kmail in
Linux and Pegasus in Windows using this format.

I'm thinking some way of allowing the programs to read the mailboxes
from a separate folder.  In this case that folder would be kept on the
USB pen drive.
I am only human, please forgive me if I make a mistake it is not deliberate.
PLEASE DON'T drink and drive it's not clever, it's just stupid.
