There are 2 folders that are important, both are located in 
one is called "Claws-mail" the other one "Mail".

claws-mail: contains all the settings
Mail: contaisn all the mail

That you get all the mails on both installations should already be
possible with pop/imap, so you dont need the common partition. 
But if you insist on sharing a directory, you can create a new
Mailbox: File->New Mailbox there you can set the full path. Or just
change it in the "claws-mail\folderlist.xml"
