Can i just empty these dirs without destroying thunderbird?

NO! DON'T DO THAT@!


Or what would be the best i could do?


Well imho, used imap instead of pop.
It leaves all the messages of your mail-server, instead of copying to your
mail client.

It has some other nice side effects, like you can read your mail from
different machines,
or (more) easily re-install a client machine without having to copy all of
your mail-folders across.

+1

We've discussed this many times.
It doesn't eliminate what's under ~/.thunderbird if you use local
indexing, but it does eliminate the message store.
