1. Not sure, point your current install to the old directory in 
Edit->Account Settings->Server Settings
or you could copy the files from your 
user/.mozilla-thunderbird/profilename/ directory over to the new location
I believe the address book is abook.mab, and mail is the "mail" folder 
at the same level.

2.Edit->Preferences->Composition->Send Options(Lower Part of Page)
Should give you all the options you need.
