Rather than renaming the ".thunderbird" directory, there is an easier
way to do this :-)

start thunderbird with "-ProfileManager". Example

$ thunderbird -ProfileManager

This will allow you to create, delete, rename profiles and choose a
different one :-)

I know on firefox you can use "-no-remote -P <profile>" to run two
profiles and instances of firefox at the same time. I am not sure if
this will work with Thunderbird (I don't have it installed to check),
but if it does, it would allow you to compare them and configure the
new one similar to your old one.

Hope this helps :-).
