I tried to set up a NEW Gmail account in Thunderbird But it will not display eventhough it confirms that the configuration is correct and that the password is Valid. Please NOTE that i previously was able to set up the email account correctly in Thunderbird but was encountering some errors and i therefore deleted it using the Account Actions menu.

I have repeated this action probably probably 5 or 6 times and I still cannot see the new email account in Thunderbird. I can only see my other Gmail Account

Would appreciate someone sharing with me a step by step answer to help me fix this problem as I have no clue

Sounds like the Google Less Secure Application situation. Go to gmail and read what they have to say about this.

FYI: Deleting and reinstalling accounts or Thunderbird software is not the best way to solve problems. It usually never solves a thing and can cause more issues as you are seeing. It is best to troubleshoot what you have and fix those issues.
