Well...it's kinda possible.  The thing is that the Mozilla mail client
hard-wires its location into the Mozilla Chrome.  We get around this on
the Mobility Email client by using a NSIS launcher to dynamically
rewrite the Chrome values on launch.  It might be possible to do what
you want but it would require preparing a special version of Mozilla
Mail for both Windows and Linux.  The Mobility Project does not have the
resources for that right now.

On the other hand, perhaps a clever script could do this
