Yes. Thunderbird can be used as an email archive container (no actual
mail account needed) or as a client for the non-email protocols that it

In practice (as far as I can see), Thunderbird cannot in fact be used
without at least one email account needing to exist but this can be a
dummy account.

I have to say that setting up a dummy account is a bit of a nuisance in
my view. A 'Set up email later' option on first run for a new profile
would be most useful. This could have a tooltip or explanatory text that
could explain why one might want to do this (e.g. archive container for
advanced users, non-email accounts, etc.).
