Macos – How to disable `New Account Setup` wizard in Mozilla Thunderbird


I have installed Mozilla Thunderbird (20090812) on Mac OS X 10.5.8.

I do not use it for reading mail, I just use it to open a mail here and there if I am interested how it will be displayed in it.

Every time is start Thunderbird I get New Account Setup wizard. I do not want to create an account. Is there a way to disable the wizard?

I have searched the web and this site, but no luck so far.

I don't know of any way to disable the new account wizard but you could add an account with fake information and then set it to not automatically check the mail for that account. Thunderbird should stop bugging you about adding a new account and it shouldn't cause any problems (unless you click 'get mail' for that account).
