6 Not to my knowledge, but you could setup an IMAP client on your box
7 (wu-imapd, courier-imap, etc) that can [obviously] read this directory
8 and then have Thunderbird make an IMAP connection to this service. A
9 decent IMAP server has an additional advantage of handling multiple
10 access to the same files (eg. having two Thunderbird instances running
11 at the same time).
