If Thunderbird is on the machine, you need to add an account or change the account settings. If it is not on the machine, you need to download it, install it, and set it up.

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

Thunderbird is your email reader (aka client), who is your email provider? AOL, Gmail, Verizon, Yahoo, etc? All of them have web based versions. That means there's nothing to download & setup, & it doesn't take up any space on your hard drive. If you insist on installing Thunderbird on a 3rd computer, here's where to download it & the instructions on how to manually configure it:

"neither machine working properly at the moment especially the laptop which I use the most often"

The fact that neither are working properly might be a coincidence but I suspect soemthing else is going on such as a virus or malware. When's the last time you ran a cleaner or did a full scan for infections? Which anti-virus program are you running?
