I apologize if this has already been brought up. I love my Thunderbird 52.9 with one exception. The default theme isn't compatible with the latest version of TB. Yes I know there are a few other themes I can get from Mozilla. I prefer one with a white background to the heavily grey colored alternatives. PS those are becoming scarce as they leave compatibility with 52.9 versions of the browser. I want to stick with this version due to it not throwing all our data on the www ( supports webapi) for others to potentially access.

Just installed and configured TB 60.8.0 to work with my Work 2010 Exchange server to send and receive mail.
What I can't get working is Lightning. The add-on is there (version 6.2.5) but I can't find any configuration page. It doesn't show up on Preferences.
Any help appreciated.
Thanks
Dan

You have to install the same version as the TB version. If you installed TB from testing you need to install lightning from there too.

If you install TB 60.8.0 from either MX test or use mxpi, you also get you lightning upgraded to the same version. - mike

Dan,
What do you mean by "I can't get it working"... could you be a little more specific?

Lightning is installed from testing.

What I mean is when I go to edit-preferences there is no lighting listed there just a calendar icon.

I want to add my exchange calendar from my work email and there no option for exchange when I go to add a calendar.

It's an add on. Tools-add ons. You have to add it there, only then you can open the calendar tab and add the calendar.

In tools addons Lightning is there.
Then I go to Events and Tasks
Calendar
Right click on Home
Select New Calendar
Select On the Network
Next

The available formats show only:
iCalendar (ICS)
CalDAV
Sun Java System Calendar Server (WCAP)

I don't see Exchange

lightning is the calendar.

Adding another email account to thunderbird is pretty easy. Just use this search text
how do I add another email account to thunderbird
and you'll get lots of hits and videos.

If you're trying to hook up your outlook/exchange server to thunderbird, that's another thing.
Might I suggest:
1) doing some searches...
I get a lot of hits when I use
can thunderbird connect to outlook/exchange calendar?
here's one

2) Start a new more specific thread.
If someone in the forum has solved this problem, they may not have posted here because it got buried in the main thunderbird release messages thread. If I were you, I'd start a new thread with a more specific topic like the search text I used above. You may get more responses with that.
