I was just wondering if Mozilla Thunderbird email program is compatible with Microsoft Internet Explorer. Or is it exclusively for Mozilla Firefox?

It works with any Browser in the sense that clicking any links in emails in Thunderbird should launch your 'Default' web browser. Equally, if you click on an email link in a web page, or click on a 'send link' with any web browser it should launch Thunderbird. It is not web browser dependent.

If you click a web link TBird just passes it off to the operating system. The OS will then pass the link on to whatever program is defined as the default browser. Your browser can be whatever you want.
