You've been around long enough to know that it all depends on your preferences, needs and capabilities. No one here know those well enough to make an informed recommendation.  :(

Version 45 is over two years old and no longer supported. I suspect that neither Mozilla nor Google will be of much help in this case.

As mentioned in previous posts, VL is no longer maintained. It is years out of date. Fine for experimenting, but not for everyday work. For daily on-line activities, you should upgrade your system to an up to date distro with up to date applications.

Looks like the last version of Thunderbird for VL was 24. Gmail now requires at least version 32. Recommended is 38+. Current is 68. What does your system have?

You probably need to configure Thunderbird for your accounts on the servers of your email provider.

For illustration, I use Cincinnati Bell as my ISP. A quick search brought me to their web site instructions:
https://www.cincinnatibell.com/help-center/internet/email-(2)/what-email-servers-should-i-use-for-my-cincinnati

As you can see, there are several fields that need to be filled out. You need the addresses of your mail servers, type of service, login protocol, user name and password. There are two parts, incoming and outgoing mail. Both need to be set up, possibly with different credentials, which are different from your local user account and password.

Some email providers don't want you to use an email client, but steer you to their webmail instead. That way they can show you ads while you read and send mail.

If you can't find what you need with a web search, contact your service provider for help.
