I am using mutt. Please feel free to forward to the thread.

It's not a mix. At least it shouldn't be.

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  apt-show-versions: Depends: perl but it is not going to be installed or
                              perl-5.005 but it is not installable or
                              perl-5.004 but it is not installable
                     Depends: libstorable-perl
E: Broken packages

About replying : I couldn't find a way to set a In-Reply-To in Thunderbird after looking for at least 10 minutes. At least it can get it from Firefox. I never used it, but I would expect mutt to be able to set In-Reply-To manually. Actually, I considered trying mutt before for that reason.

IMHO apt's error for apt-get install apt-show-versions; has something wrong since you have perl already installed. Maybe it's an apt bug. I've never seen apt-listbugs do that, good thing you thought about it. That must be ruby's fault, since all scripting languages suck...except PHP ;-P
