✔ Best Answer
You can set up multiple users on the machine where you have an administrative account and all others have ordinary accounts. Each account will have its own password and each user will have their own email set up and even if all others are using Thunderbird, they would not see your account or anything in it, that would be tied to your user only.
There are also reasons you should set up a normal account for yourself to use daily and reserve your admin account for maintenance, repair, etc. since it will be more secure. A normal user could not instal a program unless you OK'd it with your password which makes it more secure against malware.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
