get the deb from Ubuntu and install it using 'gdebi', works swell.

From lenny it will work too, don't it ?

The only problem with using the Lenny packages 'icedove' is that Debian will always try to upgrade it unless you lock the package, so I use the ubuntu package 'mozilla-thunderbird' because it is not in the Debian repos and Debian can't upgrade it, it still works swell and solves a minor problem while doing upgrades. ;-)

Note: For those using Ubuntu, just do the opposite and install the version of 'icedove' it's not in the Ubuntu repos and will not get upgraded, that also works swell too. ;-)
