Your question is very similar to https://askubuntu.com/questions/34659/
In summary - if your MS Exchange server supports IMAP or POP3 then thunderbird
can be used as your Email client.
However, if you want to directly support MS Outlook .pst files and other MS
Exchange capabilities, then Evolution is a better client to use.

You should look into this piece of software which acts as a gateway between
Exchange and mail clients. http://davmail.sourceforge.net/

From my experience, its a 'yes' to Thunderbird reading and managing mail from
Exchange, and a 'maybe' to sending email. I just started using Thunderbird with
Exchange via IMAP.
Under Tools ＞ Account Settings... I added an account. After entering my email
address and clicking Create Account, it found my organisation's details, but
they were incorrect.
I needed to manually configure it to IMAP as the type; the server name was the
same as the Exchange server (use your organisation's Outlook setup to find it);
the SSL configuration was SSL/TLS; and I needed to change Authorization to
Normal (Thunderbird incorrectly detected it as Kerberos/GSSApi).
I had no luck sending email to users outside my organisation using the Exchange
server, so I switched to another SMTP server that I could access.
I didn't have any Exchange folders other than Inbox in my setup, but I've read
that they may not automatically appear in Thunderbird. To show them, in
Thunderbird right click the Inbox folder (in the list of folders) and click
Subscribe... to check what folders are shown from Exchange.
