    I'm sure @MoxieMomma can help with that much better than I can.
    LOL. Flattery will get you everywhere, but I think perhaps you over-estimate my abilities.

    Disclaimer:
    I know nothing about "Manage Identities", as I do not use anything other than default settings for that.

    But, if all you want to do is to delete an account from within TB, it's pretty easy (see screen shot).
    I do not think it necessarily involves changing the "Manage Identities" settings.

    CAVEAT:
    Be sure to backup your profile before making any major changes. It can be hard to "undo" significant alterations to one's profile.

    Profile backup - MozillaZine Knowledge Base
    Third party profile backup software and services - MozillaZine Knowledge Base

    Let us know how it goes, so that we can all learn.

    Excellent! Thank you very much for the info. All I had to do was change the name on the duplicate account and then follow your instructions above in post #11. For some stupid reason I never saw that "Account Action" at the bottom. After reading a ton of "help" files in Mozilla and getting directed to the "Manage Identities" button then I never pulled my head out to look around. It was very easy to accomplish what I wanted to do after reading your post and I apologize for not being able to explain what it was I wanted to do. I really like Thunderbird and wanted to keep it. Thanks again for your help.

    Apparently I didn't overestimate your abilities.

    I'm sure glad you posted that, cause I was sure fixated on the "Manage Identities" thing I never even saw that "Account Actions" at the bottom. I put Thunderbird on my wife's computer today and what a bear importing the address book and I had to do the storage folders one at a time and then copy paste the content into the folder. On top of that I upgraded hers to Windows 10 Anniversary upgrade too. Been a long day and well past beer 30 . Thanks again for your help.
