Removing accounts

Hello! I added two gmail accounts to thunderbird (let's call them gmail A and gmail B), with the aim of copying all emails from one account into the other. However, I discovered I really wanted to copy gmail A over to gmail C instead. I want to remove gmail B from thunderbird, but that is my primary account. I am worried that if I remove an account, it will delete all content in my actual gmail account, which I don't want at all. Does removing an gmail account from thunderbird delete the content in gmail, or just de-link the account, which is all I want?

Removing an account from Thunderbird removes the account from Thunderbird. Nothing else.

Thanks! I believe I managed to outsource the job of transferring emails to someone who knows more about tech than me, so I might remove both accounts from Thunderbird, if it doesn't affect the Gmail account or content therein. Thank you again!
