If you shared the mbox file, wouldn't locking get all wacky?  Say you
were reading your email on Windows while your linux box was POPing some
new mail into it.

And sharing profiles/bookmarks, not to mention cache directories, would
have similar problems, if attempted at the file level.  I think the
safest bet would be to do like Adam suggested and use IMAP and maybe
throw in LDAP for address books or (if Mozilla/TB support it)
application layer roaming capabilities.

A lot of work for a newbie, without a lot of benefits.
