It's probably easier to use scp for copying the entire directory.  The
syntax is something like this:

scp -r $USERNAME@$REMOTEHOST:.thunderbird/05puurvg.default/Mail/ .

The -r means recursively copy.  This will copy the Mail dir from
$REMOTEHOST to the current directory on the local host.  If your
username is the same on both systems, you can leave off the $USERNAME@
