This is the config directory, it contains the imap cache and a lot of
other stuff. What you want to do is change the location of the config

You move the directory in the same manner you move any directory. You
tell Claws to use it by starting Claws Mail with the option

--alternate-config-dir [DIR]

where [DIR] is the full path to your config directory.
