Please be more elaborate, and please say what you mean by activating Thunderbird. – arsaKasra Jan 2 '14 at 11:10
What you mean when you say "activate" ? thunderbird is pre-installed and first you have to add an (or multiple) email account(s) and then it will be "activated". (if this is what you mean). Also check the email provider settings and see if POP3 is enabled. (it should be) – NikTh Jan 2 '14 at 11:11
Do you want to start Thunderbird client, or what? – Andrejs Cainikovs Jan 2 '14 at 11:25

The official Mozilla support page for Thunderbird installation has multiple options. Try those, and one will work for you.
