Can i just empty these dirs without destroying thunderbird?
Or what would be the best i could do?

Did you look for a folder option which "expires and deletes" messages after the
configured length of time and/or an option to "compress" the folder (IIRC this
only applies to mbox type storage)?

You don't want to delete messages and folders outside of t'bird because that
will break the indexes (there may be an option to recreate the index, but IME
it's better to use the app's built-in utilities for removal).
