How do I set up my Exchange Pro mail in Thunderbird?

Besides regular e-mail clients like Microsoft Outlook and Apple Mail, of course, you have plenty of (free) alternatives. Mozilla has an e-mail client called Thunderbird, which is a great alternative to the usual e-mail clients. Thunderbird is a free e-mail application that is easy to set up and customize. In addition, Thunderbird is packed with useful features!
