Microsoft exchange now requiring multi-factor authentication for Thunderbird

I have my email and domains with GoDaddy. Today they sent email that email client - I use TB - has to be changed to support Exchange. Their support page says I can continue to use POP or IMAP if TB supports multi-factor authentication (MFA). Does TB do this, and if so how should the server, ports, etc be set? The last post I found for Exchange is from 2019 and doesn't address this. Thanks

Chosen solution

Consider addon of Exquilla (I have had good success with it) or Owl. Neither is free, but neither is expensive.

Thanks. I'll give it a try. From what I see on the web, Owl may be the better long-term solution. But if others have a different opinion, I'd appreciate it. I'm not an email expert, but having moved from Eudora to TB only a couple of years ago (yes, I'm a dinosaur) I realize that ports, etc can mess things up and want to make things as simple as possible given that GoDaddy and Microsoft seem to want to complicate things.
