How to fix Thunderbird when it opens the wrong account


Have you ever run into this problem?  You go to a staff PC that has multiple Thunderbird email accounts on it and you try to open your email, but someone else's email opens instead of yours!  You try other email accounts and it always opens the same person's email.

Well, I've had calls about this problem from a lot of people, so I thought it would be a good TechBits topic.  The cause of this problem, I'm guessing, is an improperly closed out email account.  To fix this problem open up the email account that always opens.  Then click on the File menu and then click on Exit.  Now when you try to open your email account it should open like it normally does.
