This should help:

  * Thunderbird is a Mozilla trademark
    <https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/foundation/trademarks/list/>
  * Mozilla trademark guidelines
    <https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/foundation/trademarks/policy/>

There is also "opensourcedevelopment at outlook.com" listed for 
"Thunderbird support" which I doubt goes to any official support channel 
(or even community).
