portable IMAP client for OS X?

Is there a portable IMAP client that stores settings on a USB drive for OSX?

For a variety of reasons, my life is now shuffling from computer to computer via a 20 gig USB hard drive. The webmail for my ISP has some serious problems, making IMAP the preferred connection method. On the windows side I've found a portable thunderbird tweak that stores all of the settings in a local drive. However, I've not found an equivalent tweak for OSX. I suppose in a pinch I can just forward everything to my gmail, but I would prefer to have the ability to manage messages on my IMAP inboxes.

So far, my efforts to use the thunderbird profile manager have not been productive.

Option 1: Is there an IMAP client for Macintosh that will load settings from a place other than ~/Library ?

Option 2: Is there a safe way to pack up my settings and take them with me from system to system?

Possibly not quite what you're looking for, but the Zoë portable webmail client supports IMAP and stores everything cleanly in one directory. (It starts a portable web server and you access it via the browser on localhost).
