Thunderbird does not have accounts. You account will be with the company named in your email address after the @ usually.

SO you just add the email address to you other device.

Thank you for your reply, Matt. I am sorry, I should have explained, I'm not very experienced in this matters and I need a bit more basic information. My account is Plusnet but I can't find any where on their website where I can add my Thunderbird email address, which I believe is called a mailbox not an account. Can you help any further, please. Thank you.

Looks like you are still a bit confused. There is no such thing as a Thunderbird email address.

Thunderbird is an email client that accesses mail held on a server. In your case, that appears to be Plusnet. Thunderbird is configured with your Plusnet account credentials to allow it to download email messages such that you can read those messages. Part of those credentials will be your email address, which should be something along the lines of user@plus.net.

Those same credentials can be loaded on any number of devices/clients. If your device is configured properly (i.e. uses the IMAP protocol), you can view your Plunet email from as many devices as you like.
