What do you mean by "an individual mailbox"

If you look at your TB directory "ImapMail", and pick one of the
accounts, you'll see mailbox files - "INBOX", "Sent", "Trash" etc.
maybe with subfolders. There is e.g.

INBOX = the mailbox
INBOX.msf = TB index
INBOX.sbd = directory with subfolders.

I have just tidied up one account with the following:

cd ~/.thunderbird/<unique>/ImapMail/<account>
find . -type f -name \*msf |\
sed -e 's/.msf$//' |\
while read mb
test -f $mb && rm $mb

Check for typos, do a run with "ls -l $mb" first.

My opensuse account was reduced from 740Mb to 34Mb.
