If Exchange Server is set to provide IMAP service, you shouldn't have
any trouble with thunderbird at all...provided you set it up as IMAP. 

Exchange Server is a reasonably compliant IMAP server and Thunderbird is
a reasonably well behaved IMAP client (I don't like that it by default,
will 'move' deleted messages instead of just flagging them but it is a
configurable option).

Thunderbird does indeed offer all the subfolders of an IMAP server but
first you have to check the account settings (Tools menu), go to 'server
settings' for your IMAP account, click the 'advanced' button and uncheck
the box 'show only subscribed folders'. You may wish to ultimately check
this box but know that it is there.

To subscribe to folders, 'right click' on your IMAP 'Inbox' and choose
'subscribe' and click the 'plus' sign alongside your INBOX or any other
folders to reveal 'sub-folders' - highlight any 'unchecked' box and
click 'subscribe' to subscribe to that folder.
