My email provider is closing down in July and I found Thunderbird as an excellent new provider. In a write up, it said it was very easy to add a second, separate account. I wish to do this to keep personal emails separate from work and charity emails. How do I do this, please? (I am elderly, disabled, and not too good when it comes to IT. In other words, help needs to be spelled out in words that I can understand as I have'nt a clue what some of the language, in daily use by people who are familiar with it means. Thank you.

Welcome to the forum. To clarify, Thunderbird is NOT an email provider. Instead, Thunderbird is an excellent tool to have on your PC to let you easily manage an email account. You can set up a free email account with several providers, such as gmail at gmail.com and outlook at outlook.com . When you set up the account, you should be provided with the account information to allow it to be set up on Thunderbird.
