I don't understand the question. If you just installed Thunderbird,
why is it a big deal to uninstall it?
        I have had occasion trouble with un-install in the past.  It was a long time
        ago and debian may have improved since then.

 And if not, Thunderbird can
surely handle multiple accounts, so just add a new one pointing to
       <G>  After I posted, I discovered that thunderbird can do this.

Please be gentle with me!  I've been running thunderbird for almost 24 hours, and it is
not like other programs I'm used to.  No config/.rc files, and I hope that I can get
the editor it hands me(mutt lets you choose your editor) to behave more emacs-like.

Thanks for your cogent reponse, Walt.
