Thunderbird is open source. See here for docs:
https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Developer_guide/Source_Code/Downloading_Source_Archives
But its not easy to download it:

This is an obstacle in my eyes. Usually you can do a `git clone ..`
install some -dev packages and do `make` for a build.
